John quickly and expertly took charge of the situation facing me

I was in real trouble when I was introduced to John Tiedt of Tiedt & Hurd.  From the moment I walked into John’s office I felt a sense of complete professional competence.  John quickly and expertly took charge of the situation facing me.  Within a matter of days I started to see a glimmer of light in what at the time felt like a hopeless situation.

Most importantly, John showed me a level of compassion  that you don’t typically associate with an attorney.  I have gotten to know John through our course of business together. He guides his practice through a spiritual and ethical humanity which reflects the kind of person that exists at his core.

I like their “prevent lawsuits before they happen” approach

I am a Chinese entrepreneur. I immigrated to Unites States 5 years ago. I own a company in Shanghai, China that employs over 120  employees.  I am also engaged in several businesses in California with my business partners, in various industries. Tiedt & Hurd has served as the general counsel for all of my businesses for the past five years, and I could not be happier with them. They always get things done timely and cost-effectively. They explain the legal issues and contract terms to me in lay man terms and I can understand 100%. As a business owner, I like their “prevent lawsuits before they happen” approach. They write contracts with a high level of protection, which deters lawsuits from happening. Within the past five years, I have not had a single litigation or litigation threat with the contracts they prepared for me. They understand my needs very well, and think from the client’s perspective. Tiedt & Hurd also has tremendous resources in the legal industry in China. Whenever I have a legal issues comes up, be it pertaining to the US law or Chinese law, Tiedt & Hurd is the firm I talked to. I trust them in helping me resolve the issue in the best way possible.

Marc is a superb attorney. He goes the extra mile to make sure his clients have a clear understanding of the legal process and an understanding of the legal jargon that is used. He is also very personable and even did a house call when we were not able to get to his office. I “HIGHLY” recommend Marc for legal services. I would not hesitate for a minute on calling on Marc should I ever need legal representation again.

CFO Endorsement

I have been a CFO for over 25 years for  several companies.  As a CFO, I have been asked to manage the company’s financials, banks and attorneys.  I met John Tiedt over 20 years ago and I was lucky to be able to use him as an attorney and all of the attorneys in his company.  Over the years, I worked with many attorneys.  I was very happy with Tiedt & Hurd and used them more and more over the years. They were very professional and effective. As I spent more time with them, I was very comfortable and pleased with their work and advice. They also make good suggestions on special items that they generally do and in the areas in which they do not practice they have have suggested professionals who were competent and effective.  I like working with Tiedt & Hurd.   While there are several great law firms, Tiedt & Hurd is the best one I worked with as they work hard  and always do great work.
