"Carlos exceeded my expectations in every way on this project. Even though we are just a small 2-person partnership formation, he gave every matter and question the utmost seriousness and consideration. He worked steadily toward our deadline and was happy to help out with any small task (such as finding the correct form to file) that we needed. He priced his work very fairly and was an excellent and responsive communicator. Our situation was slightly more complicated since it involved a foreign-resident partner. Carlos was thorough in his research and provided thoughtful recommendations on this area. I highly recommend Carlos for work on corporate restructuring and family business continuity."
