"I am a new CEO of a non-profit and whenever I feel uncertain about a contract that I receive, I sent it to Rayna for review. She schedules time to not only discuss potential red flags and areas of concern but also provides/ask necessary questions to fill in the gap and make sure that what is written is an accurate record of the discussion."
"Rayna has reviewed all of my contracts after my appearance on MasterChef ensuring that my new engagements do not run afoul of the restriction in my agreement with MasterChef. She takes care to ensure that my rights and interests are protected and completely understands my goals and objectives. I will continue to have her review each and every agreement I receive."
