I hired Roy when I (had) the opportunity to buy the estate planning practice of a recently deceased attorney. He offered me the reassurance I was looking for to move forward with the deal. I would not have felt confident going in as a purchaser without Roy by my side.

After you buy a practice, what happens next? Taking over an existing legal practice can be intimidating even for seasoned attorneys. A lot of unforeseen challenges can arise, and it’s common for things to get messy. That is where Roy’s services become even more valuable.

I hired Roy to assess buying a practice. His "wake-up call" advice was real, pragmatic, affordable, and very beneficial. Without Roy’s advice, I would have spent a quarter million dollars more than what the practice was actually worth. I’m glad to have received his help.
