"Of the many attorneys who sent us proposals for our small contract review job, Eric was the only one who took the time to check out our brand, look at our website, etc. This really made him stand out in a sea of attorneys who all seemed pretty much the same. Also, his initial fee was for just one hour, which really helped us. We were on a tight deadline, and Eric did the contract review overnight for us, and sent us back very detailed reasons why it was a bad contract and we should not sign it. This kept us from engaging in a lengthy and expensive contract negotiation process. We are eternally grateful for Eric's help, and would most definitely hire him again in the future."
