We contacted the Watkins Firm initially about forming a corporation in California and later retained their services for dissolving a partnership.

The Watkins Firm has been representing me since the 90’s. He and his firm have represented me on some very complicated business matters over the years. I invest in real estate and small businesses. I have been working with clients in Japan and all over the United States. The attorneys at the Watkins Firm have been able to work through the deal points with me and obtain some very substantial victories. They are a very good firm.- E. Wakabayashi
The Watkins Firm has been my counsel for years. 8 years ago I talked to Dan about a case pending against me and how my current attorney was handling it. I was about ready to sign a check for $35,000 to settle a claim. After one meeting with Dan I was able to completely avoid liability and not pay any money to settle the case. I have been working with Dan ever since. I would strongly recommend the Watkins Firm.- Jon Hoffman , Contracting Concrete Consultants Inc.
