"I just acquired my first small business and chose Marc as my representative and guide throughout the process. I could not have made a better choice. I almost forwent having an attorney, believing I could get by without one but I'm glad to have had Marc in my corner on this. He was responsive, knowledgeable, clearly explained all our options and was personable to boot. There were obstacles that came up that I did not foresee, could not have anticipated and that Marc made my life MUCH easier on. I will be using his services again in the future."
