Raphael has represented me on a couple different cases so far. He is very knowledgeable in estate planning, employment law, corporation formation, and business law. He helped me copyright my business, he helped me with estate planning and helped me with some employment matters. Raphael always followed up with status to me each case. He also explained everything to me in detail. He cared about protecting my assets in every case, and he cared about the outcome. I feel that Raphael mainly cares about the people he serves not the money. I would say his greatest strength is his writing skills, and his ease of explaining what is going on with all of his cases to his clients. I will be using Raphael for all my future matters.
