He feels qualified to tell you how he started and managed his consulting engineering practice and to give general advice. But, he is not an attorney, accountant, insurance expert or any other kind of business professional and can only give general guidance, which should always be confirmed by as attorney or other appropriate professionals before proceeding.

Nothing should be construed as legal advice and he offer his apologies in advance, for the inevitable blunders.
