Karen has been absolutely fantastic. I asked Karen to create up to date terms of business and a contractor agreement ready for the launch of my new business. She turned these around quickly, efficiently and at a very reasonable price! I am super pleased with her work and will definitely be going back to Karen for all future legal support. I can’t recommend her enough
