Terri DiPaolo

"There are certain people that you immediately like. There are others that you know from the start that they are sharp, think fast on their feet, understand the entire picture, and have common sense to boot. Terri is both. I would take Terri standing by my side in any legal battle or negotiation any day of the week."
Jill Pietrini
Partner at Manatt, Phelps & Phillips, LLP

"Terri and I were on opposite sides of a negotiation. She demonstrated acute business acumen and an understanding of both her client's position and ours. She got the best for her client but in an expeditious responsive manner that also worked well for us. Terri found practical workable solutions to issues. On a personal level, Terri was also incredibly pleasant to deal with throughout the negotiation even when we were at potentially deal breaking issues. This always makes a negotiation much more bearable!"
