"Bill was really amazing to work with and blew my expectations away. I’ve never hired a lawyer before (or used Upcounsel), so I was a bit nervous paying someone to help me out. Not only did Bill do a lot of work for an affordable cost, but he did high quality work and always got back to me incredibly fast. I’d highlight recommend working with Bill and I definitely will he asking him to help me again as I start and scale my new business!"

"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."
