"I not only highly recommend Haig but plan on reaching out to him for any legal issues that I or any organization I lead may face in the future. He was exactly what we needed in forming a joint alliance between a website/mobile developer, digital content creator & a few high school teacher teaming up to develop an e-commerce website, mobile app, blog & virtual courses on college preparation for high school seniors. This wasn't an easy task because, although we thought we were all on the same page before retaining Haig as our attorney, Haig really opened our eyes with thoughtful questions that really got to the heart of how we want our joint venture to work. He really took the time to understand our goals and, because of that, rather than simply plug in our initial thoughts in a formal joint venture agreement, he guided us towards an agreement that we're convinced set the foundation for our ability to work together productively in pursuing our educational mission. We're thrilled (and relieved!) we chose Haig as our lawyer and I'm sure others who retain him will feel the same way! "
