  • Lauri is one of the most intelligent people I know. And she has the ability to apply those smarts in a way that produces real and creative outcomes. She has the ability to do outstanding creative work and to execute in a way that gets results and achieves objectives. I find that combination of strategic AND execution ability to be rare. She has a natural ability and highly effective commercial sense - she can build and maximize business relationships and has an outstanding ability to work with diverse organizations. She is driven to achieve success for the organization of which she is representing.

  • Whether you are working in North Carolina, North America or even the North Pole, you need to hire Melinda Morris Zanoni. She gets the job done. She does not over lawyer deals yet always gets better terms than I expect. She is smart, tough, and always has your back.

  • I have worked with Melinda for some time now and it is rare you find an attorney that can provide strong knowledge of the law; expert guidance about the entertainment industry, and still work with you one-on-one to make sure the solutions are specifically tailored for your personal situation. As a matter of fact, I have found only one - and that is why I cannot give any higher recommendation. In addition, her proactive thinking advises you on avoiding issues before you even see them coming, saving you quite a bit of money in the long run."
