"From the moment I posted a job I got countless proposals from attorneys, they kept the proposals short and general and did not reply back to any queries I had. Mike sent a detailed proposal and replied back to any questions I had before I even hired him. With each passing day and message I knew Mike was the right guy, relatable and knowledgeable, he did not hesitate to answer and change the draft for my business as my questions flooded him, he also brought up many other issues regarding new businesses; for which I will definitely go back to him once I have secured the funds, which have helped me make changes temporarily and apply the knowledge he has given Thank you again Mike will definitely be coming back for more advice as my business grows Mohammed "
