      Chad is my "go to" transnational attorney. Whether I need assistance with drafting a contract, or articles of organization, Chad is who I use most frequently. He is also very well accomplished in real estate transactions though I do not typically use his assistance in that capacity.

      As a Realtor, there are occasions when I or my clients need advice and guidance. Chad is my go to guy. He is always quick at getting back to me and laying out the time frame he will need. His opinions are clear and concise. I know my clients are in good hands when Chad is reviewing complicated title issues such as mineral and water rights. Recently, he also expeditiously helped a client of mine resolve an earnest money dispute that had been dragging on prior to retaining him.

      Chad completed an operating agreement for our LLC and took care of some title work we had on two properties in the state. His style of communication reflects concern and is professional, as well as informed. He took care of our issues quickly, which was essential as we were faced with an end of the year deadline. I felt prioritized given the expeditious turn around. His support staff were equally as helpful in the process and I recommend him for any corporate contract or real estate issues.

      Chad is a very competent, intelligent and friendly attorney. We enjoyed working with him immensely. We recently purchased a short sale and we wanted to make sure that the paperwork / title work was in order. He was very efficient and timely in looking through the legal documents and returning them prior to the deadlines. He is a great communicator and has a firm grasp of the legal technicalities that a short sale presents. I have recommended him to many friends and acquaintances.
