"Jeff was a pleasure to work with on my LLC formation. I am an attorney myself, and knew just enough about this area of the law to know that I had some unique legal issues on this project that warranted hiring outside counsel to take a look at. Jeff tackled these effortlessly, working through the initial issues and even through some beyond the horizon that I was not yet thinking of. I will definitely work with Jeff again on future legal issues."
