Mr. Downs operates with integrity and knowledge
I was the Executive Director for a non profit organization and hired Andrew to provide both legal assistance and consulting. Andrew was not only thorough, accurate and knowledgeable with his legal advice and duties that he performed for us but he was also personable, easy to work with and took an interest in learning about our organization, mission and the nuances of what we were about to help give top notch consultative services. He was responsive, timely, knowledgeable and Andrew performed his work with a high level of integrity and skill. I recommend his services and do so actively whenever I can.
