Greatest ever
For five years I have been receiving corporate counsel from Nick Spradlin. He has helped me with business copyrights; helped me stay in federal compliance concerning a particular construction contract; helped with nonprofit 501c4 counsel for raising funds for a political candidate I was helping run for office; and most recently helped me purchase a trademark and avoid the pitfalls along the way. I only recommend Nick Spradlin for all your corporate law needs. Pick Nick!!!

Very professional
With an amazing track record to view I had no reason not to go with Nick Spradlin for LLC incorporation. A great price to organize my LLC and great professionalism to boot. What was even better was the registered agent service Nick offers. It allowed me to ask any questions I needed to ask about my business for the year.

501C3 Creation
I’ve had a terrific experience working with Nick Spradlin on the creation of a nonprofit organization. I came away from the initial consult with a crystal clear idea of what I needed to be thinking about and the pricing for the full scope of work (whereas with others i couldn’t tell what kind of filings and add-one were around the corner). Nick then delivered on what he said up-front and was surprisingly accessible in a variety of ways (calls, emails, etc). Overall great experience…full transparency, great advise, timely communication, and ultimately got my company created from concept to legal filing in less than 6 months. Thanks, Nick!

HR Consultant/Life Coach
Wow, Nick is amazing! I contacted the firm and was not expecting him to answer the phone. He was very informative and gave genuine advice on starting a LLC. After conversing with him I knew this was the firm for me and the very next day I sealed the deal. Every time I speak to Nick he is always nice, patient, and overall a great lawyer! I would recommend Nick to anyone.

Incredibly helpful Corporate Lawyer that I've worked with on two separate occasions!
I've now worked with Nick on two separate occasions and I'll always go to him for all of my future attorney needs. First, he setup my LLC in Dallas, Texas and once I moved to Upstate, NY he dissolved my business in Texas and setup my S Corp in my current location. It's stressful enough moving across the country while maintaining your business. Super grateful to have found Nick to help take some of the stress off while having full trust in knowing everything will be completed based on my first experience in working with him. I'm a Creative and no nothing about setting up a business. Nick has been incredibly nice and always breaks everything down for me to make it simple. He's super organized and also extremely quick at replying and does everything in a timely manner. I really couldn't ask for a better partner to help with my business and will continue to work with him for all of my business needs in the future.
