Maximize Your Net Worth

Gain the Upper Hand with Private Equity

Now more than ever is it important to have legal counsel and advisors when considering sales to private equity firms. We’re the team you want to use to optimize your net worth and sell your business at maximum profit. Understanding the risks, costs, and benefits of choosing a private equity partner is paramount and critical to the safety and security of your financial wellness.

Flexible Payment Models

We offer flexible payment models. Some circumstances call for contingency fees while the certainty of a flat fee or the flexibility of an hourly rate might be more appropriate in others. Regardless of your needs and situation, we will find a solution.

Who We Work With

We are masters of connecting minds and bringing new insights to your business. We work with professionals in the following areas:



Throughout the country, a huge shift in the dental landscape is taking place. Now is the time to capitalize on it. While dentist to dentist transitions and start-ups remain strong, consolidation of the industry through the creation of group businesses and private equity acquisitions is driving the industry forward. Since 1980 we have represented over 8,000 dentists and delivered innovative and profitable solutions.


Primary Health

While many healthcare attorneys exclusively target industry titans, we focus on helping those who matter most—doctors. We guide and represent private practice healthcare professionals and small doctor groups with start-ups, partnerships, real estate acquisitions, sales to private equity groups, and more.



Artists, actors, and athletes on the cusp need excellent representation, too. Our entertainment business is focused on supporting up-and-coming entertainment professionals in various fields and professions to ensure they are well-protected and well-advised.



The veterinary industry is undergoing a substantive transformation. Our firm is poised to guide consolidation, transitions, and private equity acquisitions, as well as start-ups, partnerships, leases, and space-sharing arrangements.


Estate Planning

You’ve spent your entire life creating your legacy, our firm will ensure it’s protected. We offer estate planning services including trust formation, will drafting, and general estate planning to ensure the safety and security of our clients’ families and estates.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Justin Morgan helped me with my dental lease negotiations for my new dental office. He was very helpful in explaining and educating me about the contract and looking out for my best long-term financial interests. He was very intent on me getting the best deal possible and protecting me in all sorts of ways I did not know about. He is extremely knowledgeable about the needs of a dental practice and is very efficient in his work. Not only was he coaching me on the legal ramifications of things but he was also helping me with making sure my loan was appropriate and I was on the right path. I truly appreciate what Justin has done for me and fully trust him.

Jason Wood is hands down one of the most professional, knowledgeable, and genuinely thoughtful people I have ever had the pleasure to work with. How often can you say that about an attorney? Ha! As a first-time practice owner, one can imagine the stress associated with loans, lease negotiations, and a build-out. Jason was a constant support throughout that unforgettable process. He taught me a LOT, always had my best interest in mind, and proved to be an invaluable member of my start-up team. Here we are three successful years later, and he still checks in by phone, via email, or by text. He takes a personal interest in helping his clients succeed. I am an extremely satisfied client and will continue to refer friends and other dental colleagues his way. Thank you, Jason, keep up the good work.

I highly recommend Justin Morgan! He reviewed my dental associate contract and I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced in this area. He identified things in the contract and about my situation that I would not have thought about and provided great advice. He was also efficient and made the process simple. I will use him again in the future for sure.

Jason Woods is a knowledgeable dental attorney.  I am pleased with the wealth of information he had to offer during my contract negotiations with purchasing a dental practice.  He was able to negotiate a seller-favored contract to more of a buyer-friendly contract.  I would highly recommend him!

Justin Morgan has been a great attorney to work with at this firm.  As an optometrist, I know very little "legalese" but fortunately Mr. Morgan explains things to me in an easily understandable manner.  I'd recommend his services to any medical professional thus far!

We really recommend Justin Morgan to all dentists. Pat Wood is an amazing attorney and saved us a lot of time and money. All our meetings were online and easy. We are really thankful to work with you guys.
