What Our Clients Say:


Kate Romane

Chef & Owner, Black Radish Kitchen


Marlene and her team at Trellis Legal have been an enormous help for the Black Radish Kitchen over the past few years - including helping us with contracts, handbooks & employee guidelines, and lease agreements. During the very challenging time of COVID-19, we looked to Trellis as a leader for helping us and many people in our community to find small business resources and stay connected to what assistance is available. Trellis is kind, forward thinking, approachable, and willing to put in the time to find you the answers. I could not be more of a fan girl.

I deeply appreciate the people who hire me, and treating them with honesty is my biggest priority. I use my contract to ensure the couples that I care so much about can feel confident that I am not trying to trick them or take advantage of them. Trellis Legal are the only lawyers who get me, they understand me when I say that it is not about money, it is not about me, it is about caring for one another, and Trellis understands that.
