I am thrilled to write this review for Julian Dobre, from Donna Purcell QC Law. Julian helped draft an NDA for me, he asked the right questions and put together an NDA on my behalf. Julian is very knowledgeable, courteous and was able to deliver the draft in a timely manner, so I can meet my own deadline. Thank you! I will definitely reach out for more of my future legal needs.
