This is a portrayal, not the actual individual
I wanted to make a PLLC for my new Pediatric Ophthalmology practice and I found Nate after searching on the internet. I read Nate’s profile and was impressed and gave him a call and asked all the relevant questions about the PLLC formation and was very satisfied with the answers and decided to go with him. Nate is professional, knowledgeable, efficient and finished the process in a very timely manner. To add to this, Nate did a meeting after the whole process to explain and educate about the new entity and its Company Agreement which is extremely helpful to prepare you for the next steps for your PLLC. He is always available for follow up questions. It was a pleasure working with Nate and I highly recommend him.
