Daliah and her team are incredibly professional, but also very empathetic. Clients sometimes require that empathy as bad things do happen to good people. Still, that alone isn't going to do the trick, it's their knowledge of copyright law, experience and savvy that gets it done.

I dont really write alot of reviews but have to say I was hesitiant at first, but took a chance on using her services and glad i did! She is awesome, hardworking, dedicated and her prices are very fair. I would get emails from her on weekends and during holidays working on my business deal and what the best part is, she doesnt try to overcharge or rip you off. She seems to enjoy being an attorney and not in it soley for the money. She should definitly be considered the gold standard for what other attorneys should try to be like. Highly recommend her!!
