During that time the law firm has assisted me with critical business issues that otherwise could have caused catastrophic damage to my company and my personal finances. I have always felt they had my best interest in mind when providing me with advice. They have guided me when making significant legal decisions and protected me against taking unnecessary risks. I highly recommend Andy Smith and Smith + Schwartzstein.
