Law Firm Appraisal Testimonials

I just turned seventy and own a small firm with a seven figure corporate practice. There were a lot of moving parts as I was trying to determine my best exit strategy and I knew I couldn’t do it alone. Roy quickly grasped the nature of my practice and provided an easy to understand appraisal of its value and suggested next steps. I was extremely pleased with his services. He did a great job!

I liked Roy’s approach to the valuation of my immigration law firm, as it took into consideration more than just numbers. The report was put into layperson’s terms so that everyone involved in the transaction could easily read it and understand it. I gave Roy a short turnaround time near a holiday and I really appreciated his prioritizing it to meet that timeframe.

I hired Roy to value the firm where I worked to determine if it made sense to buy it from the owner. I enjoyed so much about working with him. What I liked most was how well Roy laid out the process in our initial meeting. I walked away with clear expectations and an understanding of the valuation process. The written report was excellent. Roy was very clear in describing his reasoning and laying out the process of how he obtained the number. I highly recommend his services.

I was in the midst of the process of buying a practice that grossed over a million a year and turned to Roy for valuation advice before completing the deal. I thought that Roy provided a lot of helpful advice on how to value a firm and different ways of looking at the valuation, whether based on drop off in revenue over time and/or considering how the clients are obtained and how that should effect the valuation. In all, I found our consultation time to be very helpful.

I thought Roy’s appraisal would be only based on prior years' profits, but he went far beyond that in analyzing my personal value to the firm to determine how much value would be “lost” if I was no longer the owner. That was a good way to look at value since my departure is definitely part of the deal. His methodology for reaching the valuation was well-reasoned and persuasive and the report he prepared was very comprehensive.

I hired Roy to appraise my estate planning firm. I really appreciated his openness and easy manner in discussing possibilities and problems in valuing my law practice. That all practices are not the same. That value is dependent upon the type of law primarily practiced, type of firm, manner of proposed sale and purchase, etc. Roy certainly knows what he’s doing.

Our firm handles plaintiffs’ employment matters. Roy’s work was an important step in helping our firm bridge long-existing divergent opinions. Even before I first talked with Roy, just from his video and website, I felt that we would receive experienced help in a candid and friendly manner and that’s exactly what he delivered, which worked very well for all members of our management team. I appreciated that Roy clarified numerous times that the valuation work was more an art than a science and reflective of a dearth of marketplace information rather than relying on the status of his resume to present an “authoritative” opinion to us, as some other consultants may have done.
