Andrew Legrand is a young attorney, but he isn't wet behind the ears. We are keeping him on retainer. His diligence and his dedication to providing exceptional, personalized service have earned our respect. As the attorney for our small business, Atty. Legrand has delivered more than he promised. It is reassuring to know that we have excellent legal counsel and representation on our side as our business grows. He helped us with our incorporation and he provided vital support during every stage thereafter. He gives his best, better than other lawyers we have hired.
