“I first met Martha Dwyer in April 2006, less than two years after I started my first business in NYC. From our first meeting until the present day, Martha has assisted me in a myriad of ways extending far beyond standard legal services – she has served as a business consultant, strategic advisor, valued networker, and thoughtful friend. Martha is incredibly responsive, realizing that sometimes the needs of a small business are urgent and time sensitive. On more than one occasion Martha has taken time during the weekends and her personal vacation time to assist in the review and generation of legal documents, and also consult with me on other matters.

One of my favorite things about Martha is that she is atypically light-hearted, relaxed, and refined – qualities I don’t see as pervasive among the attorneys I know and have dealt with. But these are more than her personality traits – these personal qualities are distilled in her work. Her heightened sense of design produces legal documents that derive their style from their functionality – they have all of the substance and craftsmanship to protect and serve her client with agonizing attention to detail, but with an intuitive organization that makes the anatomy of the document easy to process and understand. Good design is not about the way things look, it’s about the way things work – and she gets that wholeheartedly.

Whether it is forming a legal structure to start a business, acquiring another business, purchasing real estate, negotiating business contracts, or dealing with a business dispute, Martha receives my strongest recommendation.”
