Jaimekristen ,

A lawyer I actually like!??

I’ve known Andy for years so I’m excited he finally came out with a podcast. He’s the one lawyer I introduce to others saying things like - “he’s a lawyer but he’s actually ridiculously awesome as a human” or “he’s a lawyer you’d ACTUALLY want to hang out with for a drink!”
I’m grateful he’s putting his knowledge out there so business owners don’t make costly mistakes. Don’t skip the legal!
