“I worked with Rhonda Harper recently in connection with a trademark infringement matter. On a short turn-around, and without needing a significant amount of direction or oversight, Rhonda prepared an outstanding response report. Rhonda was wonderful to work with, particularly in view of the shortened schedule during which Rhonda had to understand all of the facts of the case, our strategies, and then prepare a response report. Based on my experience, I very strongly recommend Rhonda. She’s great to work with, and her work product is absolutely top-shelf. I am absolutely convinced that the strength of your report is a significant part of the reason that we were able to achieve a settlement that is very much in our client’s favor.” Kevin O'Shea, Shareholder, Greenberg & Traurig, LLP
