  • Robert Wayne Olson

    As a dental practice transition attorney, I have a number of dentists (plus doctors and other small businesses) that require specific help in the employment field: questions about terminating employees, defending Labor Commission or State Court lawsuits brought by employers, or needing an employment handbook. I have referred every single one of these clients in the past 10 or so years to Henry Bongiovi, as well as a number of business litigation matters, and I have never had a client who was disappointed with the help he provided. He is an excellent communicator, clear and fair. He is also honest and ethical, and is about the nicest attorney you could hope to find. I highly recommend him!
