"5 Stars - Selling a business is an emotional and often stressful time. Working with Joel made navigating the journey so much easier. He has a very direct and honest approach and gave advice and guidance that was always in my best interests. He was prompt to return calls no matter the time of day and truly understood the importance being available to me as a client. He is professional and knowledgable and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell their business or who needs legal assistance in any area of their business."
