Corporate/Real Estate Attorney
Miguel assisted me preparing an easement to allow me to sell my primary residence without issue. I also regularly call Miguel for corporate matters associated with the running of my mortgage brokerage business and real estate firm. Miguel is wonderful to deal with – responsive and his advice is always sound and researched. He is a great sounding board, he is accessible and his fees are fair. I recommend Miguel.

Miguel prepared my business’ incorporation documentation and corporate formalities with the state of California. He has stayed on as corporate counsel for my business reviewing contracts, assisting with employment issues, and the occasional insurance issue or legal demand. Miguel is a great go-to attorney with a breadth of experience. He is strategic businessman, and someone you can place your faith in as you build your business - he is always my first call. I recommend Miguel.

Commercial Contract Attorney Referral
My husband and I hired Miguel to assist us in a contract dispute stemming from the remodel of our primary residence. After receiving a high five figure demand from the contractor’s attorney, we sought Miguel’s counsel. Miguel walked us through the various problems, deficiencies and defects with the contractor’s work, and failures to comply with California construction laws. Miguel reviewed our contract documents, photographs and other evidence and produced a letter that we sent to the contractor’s attorney, where after the demand was dropped! My husband and I highly recommend Miguel, and believe he has the right measure of force, strategy and tact.

Great Business Attorney
I contacted Mr. Prietto because I was in negotiations for the purchase of an ongoing business in south Orange County. Mr. Prietto handled the deal in its entirety on my behalf, and assisted every step of the way. Using his network, I was able to build out my team with other trusted professionals. Now, he continues to stay on as corporate counsel. He is an excellent attorney with impeccable attention to detail, who is courteous and professional. I highly recommend Mr. Prietto and look forward to continuing to work with him.
