We work on projects with Jessica on a regular basis as she does amazing work. She is professional, knowledgeable, easy to work with, and communicates beautifully. Although we have high expectations, she always manages to exceed them.
Kim C.
Top Class Experience! Very professional and diligent. It is a great experience always working with Jessica.
Kirill Eremenko, CEO, SuperDataScience Pty LTD
I have been working with Jessica Merlet since 2016. She is an outstanding person to work with and she has my complete trust as my company’s legal counsel. She has, through the years, helped my company navigate all sorts of legal issues and challenges and has delivered exactly what was needed every time. Jessica always goes out of her way to keep me informed about all aspects of the cases she’s been working on for me and prepared me to make the right decisions. I absolutely recommend Jessica – you can’t go wrong with her.
Jacob Riff, COO, Monsido ApS, President, Monsido, Inc.
Jessica was great to work with. She put together everything that I wanted in the agreement and added many things I hadn’t thought of. Highly recommended.
Cecile Robles, CEO, Genesys Financial Group
I have enjoyed working with Jessica over the past several years. As the owner of a small publishing company, I often have questions on a variety of topics. I appreciate having someone affordable who is always available to answer my emails and discuss issues over the phone. Jessica has been a trusted resource over the years to provide guidance on my limited liability company, contracts, copyright, insurance, privacy, and other issues. I also appreciate how she is familiar with laws and regulations outside the United States, which makes her unique compared to most US-based attorneys I’ve worked with. When a question is outside her area of expertise, she has been able to refer me to other professionals with a high level of service. If you need an attorney to help with your business, I would have no hesitation recommending Jessica to you.
