"Tony Thompson has been my business attorney for the past few years and he is truly an expert at what he does. He was so helpful at assisting me negotiate the technical terms of the sale of my e-commerce business and also a very complicated purchase of another business. He made sure I was legally well protected in every aspect of each deal. Tony is very trustworthy and detail oriented. He is always there answering questions and explaining technical legal procedures. He’s also a very good listener and always make sure to carry out what I requested. In addition, Tony is easy to talk to and very friendly. I never feel intimated when I have to ask him easy legal questions. I plan to work with Tony for many more years even though I’ve relocated my businesses to outside of Los Angeles."
