"Over the years I practiced law, I got tired of seeing folks either being taken advantage of or being improperly counseled when going into a transaction. They have such talented minds and creative assets, but they need legal and administrative structures to protect their intellectual property and their business as a whole. To provide counsel to them and the businesses they create became our mission at Bracepoint."

"If there is one sentiment I constantly share with clients, it’s this: I’ll spend your money as if it were my money. I know how crucial cash flow can be to smaller businesses. From day one, I pledged that our firm would be upfront about what we charge and negotiate flat fees whenever we can. Our clients deserve that."
