| Hired Attorney
We contacted John to help set up our new business. He advised us on the proper legal structure and other requirements needed to establish our company. When decisions were needed from us, he clearly framed the considerations we should take for making our decision. As our business has grown, John has advised on various types of contracts and scenarios. John is highly responsive, thoughtful and respectful in all his dealings. He is quick yet thorough to complete the work, even on short notice. We intend to use John as much as we can in our business and also, to the extent possible, our personal needs. Thank you for all the great work, John.
