    He provided good advice and edited letters that I needed to write. He also gave me good information and suggestions for modifications to a property management agreement that I was about to enter into. I wish I had consulted him before I signed the first property management agreement that I signed. It would have saved me time, money and stress. Overall, the value for my money was good, probably less than some other attorneys.
