"I've worked with Chris Matern for many years. We crafted, together, my standard work contract. It was important to me that the contract be short, human readable, and understandable. It has served me and my clients extremely well. In several unfortunate experiences, I was especially glad to have it, as it made crystal clear what rights and obligations the parties have, and what steps they can take to part amicably. I highly recommend Chris"
