Mayfield Bustarde, LLP (formerly Mayfield & Associates) Client Reviews

I was referred to Ms. Mayfield-Venieris and I was so glad to find such a responsive, caring and results-focused attorney. She and I worked a real estate agreement modification for a short sale. It had many moving parts, and she examined all the details with rigor in order to ensure I was not shorted the money I was owed. She understood my objectives and helped me meet them, though she was always sure to point out potential issues where I might not have seen them. She was very responsive--we did all our work via email, only needing one phone conference to iron out the details. She and her staff were courteous and succinct in email. Business-like, cordial and professional. I highly recommend Ms. Mayfield-Venieris and her staff for your Real Estate Attorney needs.

We engaged Gayle and Mayfield Bustarde, LLP in 1996 to start our second company together, Silicon Space. Over the years they've helped us form many other companies, dissolve a few, avoid lawsuits, initiate lawsuits, fight off lawsuits, negotiate deals, structure contracts, complete corporate securities transactions, understand government and agency regulations, maintain positive shareholder relations, and manage sometimes sticky employee matters. We have on occasion strayed, engaging larger "name" regional firms for similar services, but consistently found that experience less effective and more expensive. Most importantly, of all the people and organizations with which we've done business, all the customers and vendors and employees and partners, we trust that Gayle and her staff counsel in our best interests, and that counsel is rooted not just in "the law", but in the practical and personal application of "the law" to everyday business.

Having been a senior executive for over 27 years at Pepsico, Marriott and Mail Boxes, Etc Worldwide, I would position Gayle as one of the most professional attorney's I have ever met. Her integrity is unquestionable and her ethics are of the highest caliber. She is extremely client oriented and with her excellent interpersonal and communication skills, Gayle's attention to her clients is also of the highest caliber.

Over the years, I have recommended Gayle to several companies/ CEO's that were looking for legal advice and in every instance, the feedback from them about Gayle was her professionalism, her attention to detail and her focus in getting positive results admired and respected. I have and continue to use Gayle as my attorney and will continue to recommend her.

As a small business, we need an external source for corporate counsel. Mayfield Bustarde, LLP fills that role perfectly. We work directly with Melissa Bustarde who quickly understands the issues we present and responds promptly. I know I can depend on her whenever corporate needs arise.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Melissa Bustarde, Gayle Mayfield, and the rest of the staff at Mayfield Bustarde, LLP. Since the inception of our small business in March 2005, we have encountered some legal "speed bumps", which Gayle and Melissa have helped us through in the most efficient and professional of fashion. Here at Kaian-Wright, Inc., we are mostly field technicians and installers. We simply do not know all the legal "ins" and "outs" of operating the corporation. This is why we came to Mayfield Bustarde, LLP. Melissa and Gayle assist us with keeping on top of all the corporate formalities, such as shareholder meetings and annual minutes. There have been several instances in which I needed last-minute advice, and Gayle and Melissa were always there to take my calls. It is extremely valuable to us as a company to be able to be in complete legal compliance at all times, and to know that someone is constantly on top of it.

I truly appreciate everything that Mayfield Bustarde, LLP has done for us over the years. I would certainly recommend the firm to any business seeking perfection in legal assistance.

Gayle Mayfield is the brightest legal mind that I have ever worked with. She handled my obscure issue with great intelligence and saw immediately the heart of the issue. I have recommended Atty Mayfield to others and each one has come back to me with high praise. Her charges were always fair and reasonable. I felt I was always provided legal support beyond question. For business law applications, she is far above the competition. I highly recommend Atty Gayle Mayfield.
