"It was very difficult to find an attorney to draft the agreements that I was looking for. After calling several law firms, I tried UpCounsel for the first time and within minutes had several proposals! The proposal from James Jones was the least expensive so I was a little weary at first. However after speaking with James on the phone I was very satisfied with how the conversation went and confident that he could accomplish the task I had requested. I hired James and he began the process right away. Within a few days I had two drafts to review and after a few days of revision work we have just finished the process today! I am very happy with the work!"

"My startup is like my first born child. As an obsessed founder, you can imagine how much time I spent researching and background checking. Hopefully I'm as diligent when picking an actual co-parent. Picking a lawyer is hard. I'd be damned if I worked this hard just to get caught up on a technicality or paperwork. We've all heard the horror studies of founders forgetting their 83b or some other important tax document. Anyway, my process with James started by reading his book "Startup Law Guide: What you need to know". It is phenomenal (highly recommended before hiring any lawyer for anything). The book is evidence he has a clear understanding of the legal framework that's so essential to founders. More importantly, he can clearly synthesize and explain, in plain English, the important details we need. My favorite part of working with James: He works hard. He always responds quickly and efficiently; and speed is most important in 2017 and beyond. Not only can I trust James for accurate information: but I always recieve feedback almost instantly via text or email. He's serious about what he does. James is the ideal legal counsel and a valuable asset to any founder looking to grow quickly and maintain legal compliance. Sincerely, Rashaan M. Everett CEO, The Greenwood Project"
