I have worked with Addison for many years, and he is one of the most trusted advisers I have worked with. Addison is very knowledgeable, very sharp, has a good business sense and good common sense. He has helped me and my company to navigate the complicated waters of being public, and has always given good advice and protected us well. He always carries himself professionally. He has proven himself to be a great asset in any situation, from advice on how and what needs to be filed to follow SEC rules, to advice on structuring a financing, to calls he has attended where his style and tone greatly improved the outcome. I am very particular about lawyers, and I spend a great deal of my own time reviewing and understanding contracts intimately. I do not simply take any lawyer's word on something - I dig and question until I feel I fully understand any given situation, and often have my own strong opinions on how things should be handled. Addison is one of the best lawyers I've found at getting to the core of a situation, fully addressing my concerns, and often even changing my mind when necessary given the high level he operates and thinks. Given all of that, I would give Addison one of the best recommendations I could give for a lawyer.
In addition to that, however, he has not only always provided top notch service and guidance, but he has often gone above and beyond what I could reasonably expect from a lawyer. I've had several emergency situations come up while he was out, where I really needed his help. There have been several times I've felt bad at the level I've needed his help in the timeframe I needed it, but I had to ask for it, and he has never let me down. That level of service can't be bought - it is innate in the person. I really appreciate all he has done for me over the years.
Often, writing a review or recommendation can be tough to make time for in a busy schedule, but in Addison's case, I feel honored to have the opportunity to describe what a top notch lawyer and person he is.
