I can’t say enough about Lisa Odom and Odom Law Group. They are top-notch attorneys who are not only leaders in their industry, but they treated me and my husband with care and concern. They helped us incorporate our business and I will soon ask them to help us update our estate plan. I trust that they will represent our business interests accurately and fairly. If you are looking for a team to handle your small business legal services, they are it!!
