I engaged Bert Sugayan to file startup paperwork and put in place the necessary starting documents for my single-member LLC in Washington state. Although it was a fairly straightforward operation, Bert set aside plenty of time at our initial meeting to listen to my situation and to ask lots of questions. By the end of our conversation, I felt confident that he understood where I was coming from and where I wanted to go, and, with his legal expertise, how he could help me achieve my goals.
Bert has encouraged me to ask any question, any time. He and his staff are available, responsive, and personable regardless of the simplicity or complexity of a question. They make the necessary processes and legal paperwork understandable and painless.
Bert also provided a package of basic contracts tailored to my industry; these have served me well over my first year of business. I would not hesitate to engage Bert again for matters of business law, nor to recommend him to a friend.

I couldn't be happier with Bert's counsel and willingness to go the extra mile. Bert helped me get my new business off the ground, providing sound and thoughtful advice, putting together all of the documents I need and tailoring them to meet the unique needs of my business, and a myriad of other services. Bert provides a great blend of experienced business acumen and legal advice that really makes a difference. For example, he put together not just the regular formal contractual documents I need, but also created a more "business" oriented version that will be easier for clients to accept, which is especially important when working with very large clients. In other words, Bert has that rare ability to turn complexity into simplicity, and thereby easy to accept. He also provided great business advice well above and beyond what I engaged him for. I strongly recommend Bert!

Norbert, or "Bert" as we call him, has become our go to trusted legal advisor for our business needs.
We have found Bert to be extermely knowledgeable and responsive to our needs, which we find to be very valuable in todays fast paced business environment.
Being a small business owner, I have found it difficult at times to find a lawyer that is willing to listen and be responsive.
Our experiences with Bert have been very positive and we look forward to having him on our side for a long time.
I would definetly recomend Bert for your businesses legal needs.

I endorse this lawyer. I had the pleasure of working with and for Bert. Bert is a skilled and creative lawyer who is adept at solving simple and extremely complex matters. He is an excellent negotiator whose skills have resulted in successful outcomes of complicated strategic business relationships.
