Although I was divorced in 2003, I have been in court more times than I care to count. I have had 5 different attorneys prior to hiring Carolina Leyva, Esq. Carolina came highly recommended to me by a firm in Naples, and I can honestly say that she did not disappoint. After several phone conferences, she was in possession of all documents dating back to 2003. My first and only meeting with her was incredibly successful - it was obvious to me that she had done her homework and was fully prepared. She made an aggressive decision in my case, and I attribute this move as the reason we were ultimately victorious.
People usually ask me how I started my business. They aren't sure what the first steps are, and like them, neither was I when I first started out. Starting a business is a lot of work, and I wanted to make sure that I did it right the first time. That's why I turned to M+L PLLC. They took the time to guide me in the right direction, and they explained the process in a simple manner that was easy to understand. Instead of spending months researching what the right steps are, I was set up in a matter of days thanks to M+L. Now, Frame Tale Studios has an LLC, contracts, freelancers, and a corporate structure that allows me to focus on what I enjoy doing most.
