"We retained Justin to assist with a particularly challenging contract negotiation, with counsel for the other side refusing to consider adjustments that would normally be considered entirely reasonable. Justin was very helpful in explaining the pros and cons of various approaches for the contested contract clauses to help determine how to approach the various issues. He was patient with us and with the process, responsive, and an excellent advocate. In the end we got the majority of our requested changes made. I would hire him again in a minute."
