“I have retained Brooks for several different matters over the past 5-years including both public company and private company transactions. I have also referred Brooks to other entrepreneurs and continue to do so without concern. Brooks has consistently demonstrated an ability to adapt to each situation, be it private or public and understands what issues require more attention than others. As a practitioner whose practice leans primarily towards entrepreneurs and business builders, Brooks is sensitive to costs and billings and ensures that their services are value driven and beneficial. They are practical, knowledgeable and appreciate that the business issues are paramount and should not get mired in legal technicalities. That approach is useful in negotiations and helps to get deals done.”
