No need for Diet Red Bull when the topic at your morning meeting is "The Intersection of Pre-Sale Planning and Wealth Management".

We talked about strategies to minimize taxes when selling a business, and starting the conversation early.... especially for companies with significant growth potential. The impact can be significant!

I attend these meetings to stay current on trends in the market which could impact business value. It's also an opportunity to meet collaborative professionals who want to work together to help business owners succeed at the one thing they've never done.... sell a business!

"Michael did a great job on my legal documents. He took great pains to ensure that all of the necessary legal bases were covered. Perhaps more importantly, he was patient in explaining some very technical issues and sticking with them until they were fully understood. He is extremely comfortable to work with and has a great bedside manner. I think I'm going to send my doctor to him for some sensitivity training...highly recommended."

“It's never good when you have to hire an attorney, but I'm glad I hired Michael Wakefield when I was faced with that decision. Michael was easy to talk with, fair in pricing and honest with his answers. He set my expectations and didn't let me down. We resolved the issue without having to go to court and he even refunded me the unused portion of my retainer! I wouldn't hesitate to use him again and I would absolutely recommend him with confidence to anyone looking for an attorney to handle landlord/tenant issues as well as wills/trusts/medical directives, etc. He is fair and honest, and has YOUR best interests in mind (which I've found to be a rare quality in a lawyer). He's definitely who you want on your side!”
