Did a great job for our start-up.
John handled the filings for our start-up including the partner agreements, incorporations, and negotiations between and among our partners. Laster when one of the partners left the firm, he did a great job handling that as well. He was responsive, knowledgable, and helpful to a group of owners who would rather do anything than hang out with lawyers - John and his firm made a hard process go smoothly. We would recommend him highly to any company (small or large) looking for excellent counsel.
