Personal, Professional, Proficient
Attorney Green has advised on numerous matters, both personal and business related. His advice when assisting in the sale of my business to a much larger corporation was invaluable. He provided guidance, helped to maintain focus, and anticipated both opportunities and potential areas of exposure which proved to be extremely significant. In addition, Attorney Green has handled personal situations with extreme tact and skill. From dispute resolution to advocating on my behalf, effective communication was a hallmark of our relationship. I recommend Attorney Green without reservation. His breadth of knowledge, resourcefulness and dilligence will serve his clients well.
