         I’ve owned my own business for over 10 years and recently started a new one.  Attorney Smith provided me with an LLC Operating Agreement for my new business - Virtual Intelligence Assistant Services.  Not only did she provide the documents I needed for my LLC, she also created a Client Services Agreement and On-Boarding process that has provided the protection I need, while providing a framework for delivering excellent customer service.  Last and certainly not least, Attorney Smith provided me a comprehensive estate plan for me that not only protects and provides for my family.  It also addresses how my businesses are to be handled if something happens to me.  I couldn’t be happier with the comprehensive and thorough services I received.
