Very Professional
I have used Josh's services to buy another business and renegotiate a lease. In both instances Josh was very professional offering sage advice in a timely manner. He was able to help me negotiate fair deals in both endeavors. Josh operates ethically but is not afraid to get tough when it is necessary. Josh is an excellent attorney with morals.
