    I am both a colleague and a client of Chad Mathis. Mr. Mathis created a limited liability company for my firm. He created the LLC on time and on budget. He had a clear understanding of business and tax law. After creating my firm, Mr. Mathis and I have worked together on various matters for clients. He is a trusted adviser when I have any business law questions. I never hesitate to refer clients to him. Mr. Mathis is hard working, smart, ethical, and affordable. The perfect storm for a great lawyer.
