“I believe I found the best business attorney in the valley!
David Shoup has been working on service contracts for my business and in the middle of working on them I had a big client reach out for a proposal on a big job for my company and they needed the proposal that day! I was stressing about getting it done in time. I called my business attorney (David) and he got right on it and had it all typed up for me within a few hours and I was able to send the proposal on time and my client was happy to see a quick response for my business! Totally worth the money thanks David!!”
