Excellent, thorough and articulate!
I had initially hired Andrew for a couple of consultations and since the advice he provided was extremely well researched and useful, we decided to keep him on retainer moving forward - and we haven't looked back. As a fast-growing organization, we need on-going, quality counsel and to have someone like Andrew available for any and all legal issues is very useful.

Very Thoughtful Corp-to-Corp Contract Review
On several occasions Mr. Muchmore provided me with stellar contract analysis and strategy. He performed these services with both a customer-vendor contract and a client-agent contract. Truly, he's one of the more thoughtful and intelligent attorneys I have met; I am thereby fortunate to have worked with him. He is—and will remain—my goto starting point for legal services.

Great lawyer
Mr. Muchmore was truly amazing, he helped me go through a very difficult situation as easy as it could possibly be under the circumstances. He found a gentle way to explain the process and steps along the way helping me understand wat is happening . His ability to negotiate and run the process is really good. I hope I won't need his help in the future but if I could I would definitely hire him again. Thanks Andrew

Lawyer of choice
Mr. Muchmore has been the attorney for the non-profit where I work for a year now. He has drafted our contracts, helped us resolve disputes and advised us on legal compliance issues during our national expansion. He has been a pleasure to work with; he responds to our questions and needs within the hour and is timely with all matters. He is also practical, forever providing fair and just advise, which often leads to a better outcome than expected for both sides. With his competency, he is truly the scholarly lawyer you want to work with.

"Andrew is one of the finest attorneys I have had the pleasure of knowing and working for in my professional life. Andrew is highly intelligent and detail oriented.

Andrew wastes no time getting to the heart of the matter and ensures that his clients are paying only for work that will directly benefit their case.
