"Bill is quite simply an excellent attorney and you should not think twice about hiring him. Bill not only has an exemplary resume of education and work experience, but he possesses a client-centric attitude that made what I felt was a fairly complex private investment structure into a totally painless experience for executing the deal. Bill was able to quickly interpret my term sheet for the private investment and then efficiently translate it into a robust bundle of highly-professional legal documents. Thereafter, he setup time to educate me on each document at a high-level and then proceeded toward successfully ensuring all of my specific questions and topics of interest were fully addressed. He will be my first call for future legal advice and I look forward to working with him again."
