Legal Advice for Contractor
Legal Advice for Homeowner Renovation

Steve Williamson, Williamson Construction Consulting Services, LLC

I am posting this recommendation for Gilsdorf Law, LLC and for Mary Jo Gilsdorf, Esquire.  Recently WCCS LLC, my consulting firm negotiated a large contract for commercial technology center development in Delaware for Program and Project Management pre-development and pre-construction services.

I had a professional service agreement (PSA) that was outdated and did not, as I found out through Gilsdorf Law LLC's attention to detail, offer my firm with sufficient safeguards in more than a few areas of contract law, insurance coverage and general liability exposures.

Mary Jo did an excellent job of re-crafting my firm's old Professional Services Agreement to better protect the firm. She accomplished this word-smithing of the agreement adding to its substance while not changing the style and format of the old form so that old clients would still be comfortable with my PSA agreement now in a much more robust format.

Furthermore, as a result of this effort which Mary Jo conducted in an expedited yet economical manner, WCCS LLC now has a new standard PSA agreement which both old and new clients understand and accept well.

Thank you to the Gilsdorf Law LLC firm and to Mary Jo for the personal, effective and efficient manner in which legal services were rendered to my firm.

"Thank you for doing a great job yesterday.  I mean it.  Your demeanor and patience were the highlight of the process.  Way to go!"

Mary Jo was recommended to my wife and me to assist with a home contractor dispute.  She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about contract law and she was very thorough.   Throughout the process Mary Jo was very communicative and responded promptly to all of our questions and inquiries. She used her time well and minimized her overall fees and cost.  

Being in a position where you need to enlist the help of a lawyer is never a good thing but Mary Jo helped make the process as painless as possible, and she provided us with the valuable service we so desperately needed. My wife and I recommend her to others wholeheartedly.

I met Mary Jo through real estate and have known her for many years. I have had occasion to recommend Mary Jo to friends and family and clients. Her knowledge of the law, construction, contracts and litigation, coupled with a caring and sincere attitude makes her the one I turn to or recommend when in need of advice or counsel.

A note to say it was very nice to meet you last week and for guiding the Mediation so professional and at the same time compassionately.  These things are not easy on either party, but with your kind assistance we got through it and resolved.
