“When it comes to business lawyers there are many that talk a good game, but Bill and Phil make it happen. I have invested in many businesses in my career and each one of them has had multi-layered problems. Bill and Phil addressed corporate structure and contract negotiations effectively and timely. I recommend them without hesitation.”


“I owned four businesses and encountered legal challenges involving my commercial leases, employees and franchise agreements. DeCandido & Azachi negotiated resolutions on all those issues, and when we were compelled to litigate in a matter, the firm obtained a successful result.”
