"I received several offers on my inquiry through UpCounsel. Upon reading Paul’s background and his understanding of my request, I decided to go forward with him. I can tell you I made the right choice. He in clear detail created a document that explained every detail of my Operating Agreement. I will definitely be using Pauls services again in the near future. Thanks Paul!"
