"I hired Chad to draft a terms of service and privacy policy for a website and mobile service. I have to say that I was somewhat disappointed in the overall quality of work. I was hoping to find an attorney that would think hard about my business situation and be proactive about thinking through scenarios that were specific to my business, but I found him mostly responsive to my suggestion and concerns rather than proactive. I had to do a lot of groundwork to make sure I was safe and the whole thing took a lot of my time."
