Thank you Mr. Olson for your satisfactory job.

I would absolutely recommend Robert Olson to any dental professional involved with selling or acquiring a practice. One of the things I appreciated most greatly was his knowledge of the dental acquisition process. This was my first (and likely only) time acquiring a practice, but he has handled the legal side many times, so his advice and expertise were invaluable to me. I have worked with a general business attorney on an acquisition before (did not end up buying that practice), and my experience this time around was worlds different. I felt secure the entire time that nothing would be left out, everything from the acquisition to incorporation would be handled in a complete and correct manner. Also, the flat fee ended up being less than I would have paid another attorney charging by the hour. This I also know from experience.
Robert Olson is also accessible and responsive, always an important factor for me.
Hiring Robert Olson was, hands down, one of the best business decisions I have made, and I look forward to relying on his legal advice in the years to come.

Mr. Olsen was excellent at establishing our living trust. I appreciated his strategic thinking which guided us fully in our decision-making. His thoroughness was valued as my wife and I are sticklers for detail.

Robert Olson was highly recommended to me by my attorney when he was out of the country. Mr. Olson was extremely helpful in reviewing/modifying a lease contract, and went above-and-beyond anyone's expectations to work within a ridiculous time frame presented by the financial institution. I cannot express enough my highest recommendation for Robert Olson!

I hired Mister Olsen to represent me on selling my Santa Maria practice and also to help me buy my Newport Beach practice as well.
Mister Olsen was the essential key to a very successful transition on buying my Newport Beach practice. His friendly personality combined with his integrity and high knowledge made this extremely important step of my life very easy.

Mr Olson was extremely helpful in closing the transaction regarding the sale of my practice. He did so with dispatch without error and was very thorough.
Posted by Benjamin, a M & A client, Flag
My experience with Mr. Olson was very professional and the transaction went smoothly. He offered his advice as well as other options for all matters. I always felt that he had my best interests in mind. He is very easy to get a hold of, and returns calls/emails promptly.

Mr. Olson was fantastic. His services and knowledge were invaluable during my partnership buy in. Great job.
Posted by kevin, a Business client, Flag
Mr Olson did EXACTLY what i hired him to do in a professional and timely manner. He is extremely knowledgeable in Medical/Dental practice sales and transitions. His set fee for the process is well worth it when you realize from day one he's done it before and knows what he's doing.
I'd use him again in a heartbeat !

I have had the pleasure to work with robert on several different projects (lease reviews and practice sales). I dont think there is anyone else I can trust more when it comes to such transactions. He's easy to get a hold of and great with deadlines, but above all he makes sure that every detail is taken care of.

Robert Olson handled a practice sale, associate agreement and dissolution of a corporation for us. He was very professional, did exactly what he said he would in a timely manner and for the price that was quoted. He made us aware of potential issues and we always felt that he was looking out for our best interest. We would definitely recommend him for any legal issues.
Posted by Jacob, a M & A client, Flag
I do not think I have enough space to say how pleased I am with Robert's performance. He was there for me: with his advice, knowledge and dedication. After hours, on the weekends any time I needed him he was there for me. Bob is not one of those people that will blindly do something; he takes his clients interests close to his heart and does everything to guide you in a right direction.
I am very impressed with Bob's performance and will strongly and enthusiastically refer him to every friend and college I know. My case was difficult and long we started in May and finished in September but thank you to Bob we were able to finish and overcome all the difficulties.

My partner and I hired Mr. Robert Olson to have a partnership and buy a dental office. He was with us all the time and always available. He guided us to have a proper partnership and he was very precise and meticulous in all parts of partnership and sell agreements. I highly recommend him.

Robert Olson helped with the sale of our dental practice. His expertise and negotiation skills were much appreciated. He was always prompt at answering our questions, even on the weekends. He really cared about us, negotiating a fair and beneficial contract. It put my mind at ease knowing he was working for us.

Robert Olson is the best of the best!
My partner and I hired Robert to help with the sale of our dental practice. He was absolutely critical in all aspects of the sale particularly in respect to negotiating lease assignment and contract terms.
I can Highly recommend!
Posted by a M & A client, Flag
Robert Olsen represented me in the sale of my dental practice. He was professional, efficient, answered my questions, and saved me some money in the process. I was very pleased with his services and the whole process as it can be a bit over whelming. I highly recommend him to any potential dentist either in the purchase or sale of their dental practice. I had also used Mr. Olsen for the potential purchase of a practice and it was his review of the contract presented that brought up a lot of red flags. I was glad he was in my corner and looking out for me at all times!
Posted by Sohail, a Partnership client, Flag
I needed a business lawyer who is familiar in the dental field. I talked to several lawyers and when I talked to Robert, I was very impressed by his knowledge and knows how to help his client to get he wants without losing the deal. He was very thorough and detailed through out the transaction. He ended up doing most of the work as the other fancy lawyer missed half of the stuff. Any way Robert is tactful and very good in negotiation.
If you want a good lawyer call him you will not be disappointed. I will recommend him to anyone.
Posted by Carlos Garcia, DDS, Flag
Mr. Robert Olson did an outstanding job during the negotiations of the dental practice I bought. He handled every detail of the transition with the highest degree of professionalism. He was very knowledgeable with the entire process and ALWAYS available for questions. It was a great experience and I felt very confortable during the entire process. I highly recommend his services to anyone buying a practice!
Posted by a M & A client, Flag
Rober Olsen found the potential problems that I might get into in the future in the transaction of my first dental office purchase. He did negotiate hard with any parties that I had to deal with through the transaction, and he resolved the problems in a favorable way for me. That was the part that I like most about hiring him. It took extra time to close the deal, but it was for my own benefit and I was totally fine with it. Robert Olsen releaved my anxiety as a first time buyer.
Posted by a Contracts client, Flag
I had a very good experience working with Mr. Olsen in the purchase of my dental practice. He covered every legal detail in the purchase agreement. He is very thorough, responsible and professional. I also appreciated his availability. He responded promptly to my e-mails and calls all the time.I would definitely recommend him to my colleagues and work with him in the future.
Posted by Mark, a Business client, Flag
I was referred to Mr. Olsen by the industry leading endodontic practice transition specialist and I am thankful that I was!
Without Bob's expert guidance I suspect the buy-in wouldn't have succeeded. In addition to his brilliance Bob also has a friendly demeanor and is exceptionally accessible. Correspondence was quick and concise. I would and have sought Bob's guidance on any legal matter. Thank You Bob for the great work that you do!

Bob did an excellent job helping me sell my dental practice. He is very knowledgeable and was always available to answer questions or help with problems. We were were always kept up-to-date on what was transpiring, and he completed needed paperwork immediately. I recommend him highly.
Posted by David H, a Corporate client, Flag
Robert is an exceptional lawyer who has provided exceptional counsel to our business. I would highly recommend his services.
Posted by Chris, a Health Care client, Flag
The first attorney I had hired to help me with the purchase of an Orthodontic practice was less than helpful and it became clear after a few months that his intention was to rack up as many billable hours as possible while doing the least amount of work.
Bob Olson, on the other hand, was outstanding! He was an excellent advocate for my best interests. He was easy to get ahold of, thorough in his work, and no nonsense. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering a dental transition.
Posted by Marie, a Corporate client, Flag
I use Mr. Olson when I moved and sold my first practice. He made the process so simple and drama-free. He was always available to answer any question I had and didn't have the meter running. I had worked with someone else who had a receptionist bill you by the minute. So the other lawyer would chat you up to run up the bill and would never give you a straight answer. Mr. Olson charged me a flat rate for the process and was always direct and to the point while giving valuable information so you could easily make an informed decision. I have used him many times since. He helped me set up my new practice and keeps my corporate minutes, set-up my agreements for associates and even helped me evaluate potential partners.
He has been an excellent asset to my team of advisors. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of the services he provides.

Mr. Olson did an exceptional job assisting me with the sale of my dental practice. I was impressed with his expertise and knowledge of the legal as well as business aspects of the dental practice transition. Robert delivered excellent results in a short period of time as I had strict time guidelines. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Olson and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a good legal representation in any dental practice transition.

Mr Olson helped me with the purchase of my second practice that I merged with my existing practice. The practice I purchased was next door to mine so he also helped me with my lease options by reviewing my lease and the sellerâ€™s lease. Throughout the entire process, I was confident about the legal representation that Mr. Olsen provided for me. His expertise and great communication always put my mind at ease especially when there were setbacks in the negotiations. I chose the flat fee package and I am glad that I did. I was able to place as many calls to Mr. Olsen for any questions without hesitation and without worry about my legal bill. He always answered my questions thoroughly and always helped me understand my options. The flat fee package also covered any follow up questions after closing the deal.
Mr. Olson was very easy to talk to, explained things well and always made sure that I understood what was going on. He always communicated very well not only with me, but also to the other parties involved. I always spoke directly with Mr. Olson and not any third party or assistants. He was very efficient and always returned my calls and e-mails promptly. I highly recommend Mr. Olson for any purchase, sale, and lease negotiations and I will not hesitate to do business with him again.

Robert Olson did an outstanding job helping us with a dental practice purchase. He was always available to answer questions and worked deligently to prepare and review documents related to the purchase. His business knowledge and experience with dental practice purchase and sale transactions resulted in excellent direction and guidance which helped us tremendously in making decisions. It is very comforting to feel you can trust those on your team. I strongly recommend Robert to anyone planning to buy a dental practice.

Posted by a Insurance Fraud client, Flag
I have been asked to sign a shady contract by the company owner. I called few dental attorney to get their idea. Mr Olson, was absolutely the best out of all of them, he made my problem and question his priority rather than asking for money in advance to talking to me, like others did! He is very knowledgable, great listener, patient, compassionate and extremely professional. I will definitely start to work with him and use his expertise in my business. I have already spread the good word about him to most of my colleagues. Thank you so very much Robert!
Posted by John, a Health Care client, Flag
Mr. Olson is the best ever lawyer I have used. I never had to wait more than a few hours to get a response to my questions. He was very prompt in his actions. If needed, I will hire him in the future.

Posted by Kamelia Mallak, a Contracts client, Flag
I am very grateful for the outstanding work of Bob Olsen. I want to acknowledge not only his expertise in the area of practice purchase, but also his dedication to always being available to answer my questions, or work through the inevitable issues which surface. The consistent timeliness of his responses to my questions can not be over emphasized. His kindness and understanding combined with his professionalism was a reassuring and stabilizing force for me throughout this process.
Thank you for your professionalism and timeliness of executing the transition documents. I always felt up to date and informed.

Very good in all aspects of dental practice sale. Went out of his scope of duties to make sure that everything is right where it's should be. Has experience in other areas of business transactions, which came in very handy.

I was extremely impressed with the way Mr.Olsen handled the sale of my Dental practice.I was initially apprehensive,but he was always patient,clear,and attentive that at the end of the transaction, I couldn't believe it was all over.
Posted by Douglas, a Partnership client, Flag
When I initially became a partner in my practice, Robert was recommended, but I went with someone else instead. That was a huge mistake, it was a miserable experience that cost me extra time (inattentive attorney who didn't pay attention), and tens of thousands of dollars in fees and lost ownership revenue. When it came time to buy my partner out, I went with Robert. My experience with Robert was the complete opposite, he looked out for my best interests (even over his), he knew my case, paid special attention to the details, and always returned phone calls and e-mails promptly. He was honest, up front, efficient, and got things done when he said he would. I can not rave about him enough. I highly recommend him to all my colleagues and would never use anyone else for transactions and S-corp management. Thank you.
Posted by Robert S. Gould, MD, a Corporate client, Flag
I needed to set up a corporation and had my own ideas on what I wanted to accomplish.. Mr. Olson was attentive to my ideas and I felt heard when I described my vision to him. He not only gave me what I wanted, he gave me what I needed. It turns out that I don't know everything about his business and he was very capable in his direction. In the end, with a minimum of fuss and bother, we produced a document that accomplished my goal better than I had envisioned. I would strongly recommend Mr. Robert Olson, especially to a health care professional who needs corporate legal advise.
Posted by Rob, a Corporate client, Flag
I purchase a dental practice from a retiring dentist. The seller and I decided to jointly hire Bob Olson to represent both of us. He proved to be incredibly knowledgeable, dependable and fair. I feel Mr. Olson is a big reason why the transition happened so smoothly. Also, he did a terrific job helping me set up my corporation.
Posted by Marshall, a Partnership client, Flag
My experience working with Bob was exceptional. This was my first experience in the purchase of anything substantial, let alone half of a practice. From what I understand, partnerships are a lot more difficult to do than just purchasing a practice, and he made the process seem so simple. He was very timely and always readily available via phone or e-mail, which was great. He was very helpful, honest, thorough, attentive, and professional. Bob went above and beyond my expectations. I would highly recommend him to everyone. I'm already referring my friends to him.
Posted by Nicholas, a Partnership client, Flag
I found Robert Olson online and thought his website, education, past experience, and skill sets would work well with our dental practice. He was very professional, timely, and extremely helpful in completing our associate agreement. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone that asked.

My experiencience working with Bob Olson was exceptional. I have bought and sold several dental practices over the past 15 years and his contract is the best I have ever seen.

Posted by Steve, a Contracts client, Flag
Robert helped sell my practice recently, and he was very attentive to my needs always returned my calls promptly. He even spent several hours on the phone during the weekend to help me close the deal. He was attentive, prompt, professional, and most importantly wants to get the job done.

Let me just say that Mr Olson surpassed all of my expectations with his professionalism and demeanor. I have worked with several lawyers in the past and Robert is by far my favorite.

I hired Mr Olson after attempting to handle a dental practice acquisition on my own and had become extremely frustrated. After hiring him I was immediately relieved. He was efficient, handled matters in a timely manner and gave me realistic expectations. He saved me time, gave me peace of mind and was well worth his fee. I would recommend him to anyone purchasing a dental practice.
