"Chris was incredibly helpful in reviewing a modeling contract on my behalf to ensure that I was getting terms that were fair and would not ruin my career before it got started. He explained to me in plain terms what each paragraph meant and discussed potential ramifications of various paragraphs. Highly recommend!"
