I have been a client of William Abbott both business and personally for over 44 years. During those years, Attorney Abbott advised me on business contracts, acquisitions, tax and financial matters, human resources and real estate transactions. . . . Attorney Abbott’s diverse expertise, intelligence, along with being trustworthy and competent, have assisted me in business and personal success. I highly recommend Attorney Abbott for any legal endeavor.
