"I was introduced to Josh by a mutual friend. Having helped to write a book about business and legal issues in the computer game industry, I know a lot of lawyers. Josh demonstrated a depth of knowledge about the software and game industries that I've rarely found. When I required a lawyer to review an employment contract offered to me, Josh was able to give me sound advice and help me with the revisions to the contract. I've introduced Josh to other software engineers and game developers because I recommend him highly for legal work that a small business or artist might need done."
