Fabulous Attorney
I've known Roy for years and he has helped me with family trusts, real estate law, corporation set up, and overall great business advice. He is no nonsense, to the point and always watches out for my best interests. Not only that he is wickedly funny!

Knowledgable, Experienced & Well Rounded
Roy has helped me multiple times over the years and each time with tangible results. The first time I hired Roy, he helped me with a dispute from somebody who refused to pay me for services rendered. After one letter from Roy, the individual paid immediately. Roy later helped me put together an estate plan. He and his team reviewed my situation and offered suggestions to protect my assets and most importantly, give me peace of mind. Roy has also helped me create business agreements and carefully looks at the pros and cons on any ideas that I have. He is a great sounding board and has experience and knowledge in different areas of law that help any business owner from start up to mature.

Great Experience
Roy helped me with several issues in the past but most recently helped me create my estate plan. He was very thorough and made me think through the different scenarios that could occur to make sure my family was best protected. I was also considering purchasing a business, and again, Roy helped me think through different scenarios while discussions were under way. At the end, I opted not to move forward with the purchase, especially after the points Roy brought up. Roy is very knowledgeable and everyone at the firm there is always happy and friendly.
