"Mr. Smith saved the Congregation's sale transaction when he was recommended to us as expert substitute counsel after our transaction became stalled despite 6 months of futile effort.

He took over, negotiated a new deal, obtained Attorney General and Supreme Court approval, and brought us to a successful closing in 3 months. It was a gift to find him and he will be the Church's attorney from now on!"
