Words From Clients

  • I came across Daniel’s profile on LinkedIn and noticed he provided a wide range of legal services to start-ups, tech companies and small businesses. I needed his help to review a shareholder agreement for my new incorporation. I had a VC that was very interested in investing in my eCommerce business, and was pushing me to sign this agreement as soon as I could. Daniel was very professional and thorough with his review of the 49-page agreement. He gave me a lot of advice up front and provided great recommendations for changes. He pointed out numerous problematic clauses that would’ve screwed me over in the future. Daniel’s approach is professional, consultative and empathetic. I felt he was there to help me and had my interest as his number one priority, quite the opposite of other lawyers I’ve spoken to in the past. I recommend Daniel’s advisory for all your legal business needs. He’s a great asset to have working with you and your team.

  • Antonio is a fantastic lawyer, and you should hire him when you buy or sell real property.

    We sold a condo and bought a house with his help, and found him to be diligent with the reams of required paperwork, and patient with explanations of the contents. Real estate transactions are apparently conducted with sudden bursts of urgency on evenings and weekends, and Antonio was there at the oddest of hours when we needed him. He was also extremely helpful when dealing with a less-than-reasonable buyer, providing us with a solid understanding of the law and the mechanics of the transaction so that we could negotiate successfully. Finally, the cost of his services was very reasonable, particularly considering the high quality of the work.

  • Antonio assisted me in navigating the legal requirements of a land severance project. His attention to detail and diligence was very impressive. The project was a success as a result of his efforts.

    Alex T.
  • Antonio provided legal services for a couple of real estate projects/transactions I was involved with personally. He demonstrated a high level of professionalism through his diligence and commitment to responding to my questions in a timely manner and ensuring all conditions were addressed within the established deadlines. Antonio is personable and dedicated to providing clients with the legal expertise they require.
