Absolutely superb
Mr. Judd is extraordinarily well versed in many areas of business law to include corporate governance. His responsiveness was outstanding, if not immediate. Mr. Judd is extremely personable and was able to explain the legal ramifications of my company's circumstances in a manner which could be understood by a lay person. Further, he went above and beyond by explaining any next steps we should anticipate. I highly recommend Mr. Judd and intend to continue to utilize his services.
