    I recently worked with John on a nuanced commercial transaction that took many twists and turns and included forming and funding an ESOP. Throughout the process John proved to be a valuable advisor and problem solver with skill in both the underlying body of law as well as the spirit of the law and the transaction. He helped make a difference in a difficult transaction.

    Mr Bentas was professional. He always responded to me promptly with every request for counsel and information. He was very patient, and easy to work with. He aided me enormously with the sale of my businesses, which was a very complicated process. He worked effectively with my CPA to arrange a sale that was structured to my advantage. At every point in the process it was obvious to me that I chose the superior representation. I do not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of his services.
