    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Alan for quite some time as we are in the same community and networking group, and I have a great deal of respect for him. He is an excellent attorney with a keen sense for the issues, especially in the Venture business and business advising. I am happy to have him as a person I can refer my clients to, as well as, having someone I can use as a sounding board for my clients, if I am not sure on a particular issue.
