"Bill is very knowledgeable attorney. He guided and helped me set up my LLC and made the process very easy even though my situation was complicated because I am US resident and I was new to creating a business. Bill is very reliable, and replied quickly to my messages. He told me from the beginning all the costs involved in creating a business, and he knew them very well. I will continue to use his services in the future. I highly recommend him."
