Tax and Small Business Attorney
"I would use them again for any future legal needs."
"I used The Abernethy Law Firm to draft a buy-sell agreement with my business partner. They quoted a fixed-fee, which I thought was a nice way of doing business. They also did a good job of anticipating possible issues and facilitating good discussion regarding those issues. I would use them again for any future legal needs."

"Matt helped me setup an S corporation for my mobile app business. He went above and beyond, making the process quick and painless. He handled the articles of incorporation, got me a federal tax ID, drafted my bylaws, helped me with the minutes for my annual shareholder and board of directors meetings, made my S election with the IRS, and even helped me deal with the bank to get an account opened up. He was a pleasure to work with, maintained constant communication, and was up-front about all fees. I give him my highest recommendation."
