Welcome to another Sound Business Services’ (SBS) client profile. We recently interviewed Sam Woodhouse, managing partner of Woodhouse LLC in Atlanta, Ga. Here is what he had to say about the driving force behind starting the company, how it’s changed and expanded over the years, and what he gets out of the SBS relationship.
Jonathan Bill: Tell our readers what Woodhouse LLC is all about.
Samuel Woodhouse: Woodhouse LLC is a client-focused law firm located in downtown Atlanta. We bring a solutions-based approach to the practice of law to deliver proactive, thoughtful and creative answers to the business challenges that our clients encounter. Our logo is about understanding the challenges and risks that our clients have in managing their business to the bottom line. Our business card provides value-driven services and crafting solutions to the problems that our clients encounter. Our trademark is obtaining outstanding results for our clients.
JB: Tell us about the driving force behind why you started the company, and how your goals/expectations have changed over time.
SW: I started Woodhouse LLC because I wanted to deliver personalized legal representation to my clients. The legal challenges my clients face are very unique and personal to them. Therefore, I believe that it is important to craft solutions to their problems that apply directly to the client. Our goals have changed over time, in that they have continued to expand. We started out just expecting to provide limited services, such as litigation. However, our clients have responded so positively that they have continued to ask us to expand the services that we provide to them. The expanded services include contract law, commercial arbitrations and local counsel assistance.
JB: What sets you apart from the competition?
SW: We listen to our clients and make sure that our services positively impact their bottom line. We place great emphasis on knowing the business of our clients. As such, our legal services are shrouded in an understanding of the pressures and risks that our clients have in managing their business to the bottom line. In representing our clients, we factor in what it takes for them to successfully run their business.
JB: When did you first engage SBS? Why did you reach out to us?
SW: We first engaged SBS about a year after we opened. We had a successful first year and found ourselves in a tax dilemma because our records were not in order, and I was spending a great deal of time on recordkeeping and financial issues. This took time away from representing my clients. I reached out to SBS and they quickly cleaned up my records. My bookkeeping has been top notch ever since then, which was nine years ago. I have saved a ton of time and money once SBS starting handling my bookkeeping.
JB: What services does SBS currently provide to your company?
SW: SBS provides all of our bookkeeping needs.
JB: Please explain the difference that SBS has made in your company.
SW: SBS has made us more efficient and better organized. They provide personalized services to their clients. They are always responsive, and they pay attention to details. In nine years, I have never had a problem with SBS. They work extremely well with my accountant. SBS is simply the best of the best!
JB: Thanks Sam!
