  • “He’s probably the best attorney I know – an excellent attorney. He is one of the few that understands business – a deal maker not a deal breaker. He grasps very readily the picture of what’s going on and he is a quick observer. He’s a lawyer with an understanding of business – a bit of a psychologist who understands what makes people tick. He is quick and efficient. The billing is always reasonable. We are very happy with him.”
