In a Jam
Brandon helped set up a LLC for my partners who started up a new financial advisor firm. He was diligent and timely with our request as we were up against the clock to get it started because another law firm had made numerous mistakes. He cleaned everything up and we are on our feet and confident that we covered all our concerns with the help of Brandon. I would recommend him for any law work without hesitation.

Efficient and helpful
Brandon wrote a contract to sell my horse and related equipment. The related equipment was on installment. He wrote a contract that protected my interest, released me from liability and insured payment. Brandon was easy to work with, he produced the documents in a timely manner and very knowledgeable. I would recommend his law firm.
