We are so incredibly grateful for your help. You managed to accomplish in a week what we weren’t able to do in six months with our other attorneys, and you did it with such enthusiasm and knowledge that it was actually fun! Thanks to your advice, we’re finally on solid legal footing – and for the first time I feel like I have a good working knowledge of everything we need to do going forward. Thank you!
