Exceptional and Personal Service
I have been using Dan as our company's attorney for almost six years now. Since our company is in the Internet field, it was critically important that we align with someone who understands the laws behind the Internet inside-and-out. Since day one in working with Dan I have never received anything but exceptional and personal service that I could never find with another law firm. If you are an Internet based company, in the high tech sector, or need an attorney who understands the laws of technology, then Pepper Law Group is definitely your firm.

Insight Rocket's Success with Pepper Law Group
Insight Rocket is a small but growing software company. When we formed Insight Rocket I wanted to do better than the very general contract assistance I've received from attorneys in other businesses I've run. Dan's experience in the technology space has been an enormous benefit to us when negotiating with Fortune 500 companies. Even though we're much smaller, he manages to protect our interests without driving them away from working with us. Furthermore, I'm able to ask him what is reasonable and customary based on his experience with other technology companies and base our positions on his advice. He is even familiar with details such as those for our hosting provider (Amazon Web Services) and how they affect what we can promise in our contracts. I'm extremely happy with the work we've done together.

Pepper Law Group helps us through our growing pains
Dan helps us with contract review, and makes sure we're aware of the unknown unknowns that could hurt our business down the road. We know how to be good technology consultants, but many other aspects of running a start-up consulting firm are painful for us. Dan helps reduce that pain, and does so in a friendly, educational, and timely manner.

Very Knowledgeable
Our initial consult with Dan was in March. During the consult, Dan seemed to know the subject matter inside and out. While I am not a practicing attorney, I do have a law degree and everything that Dan advised made sense to my limited legal knowledge/understanding. We then began working on our venture in August. Since August, we've had a great experience with Dan on our venture. Dan handles all of our legal issues, and he also offers advice on non-legal matters such as business plan review, financial plan review, etc. We expect to have a long relationship with Dan.

While our particular LLC requires unique advice that would be difficult to find with a generic law firm, Dan provides the advice with a feeling of "I'm looking out for you." Although many attorneys may say that, it's not always true. We are confident we have chosen the best with Pepper Law Group.

Knowledgeable and effective
When my partners and I embarked on a new startup which involved aspects of the adult entertainment industry, we knew we would need counsel with specific knowledge of the rules governing adult and compliance regulations. We chose Dan @ Pepper Law and were very pleased with the level of specific industry knowledge he had. We also had aspects of our business that were very different to existing business models and Dan and team were able to craft appropriate agreements for us which we use with our clientele every day. And not only are Dan and team highly competent, but they're great, fun to work with people too. We are delighted to recommend Dan and Pepper Law without hesitation.

Dan Pepper
Dan is a steadfast trusted partner for business owners, he keeps a cool head under pressure, and always knows the right approach. His technical skills and experience makes him ideal for working with modern digital companies. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a business / contract generalist and even more enthusiastically for anyone looking for help with internet based businesses. I've worked with Dan through several businesses, he's helped me at the beginning when starting a business, the highs, and the lows. I value his experience at every stage of the life of a business. I may keep on trying something new, but Dan will always be there at the ready, willing to advise me through the most critical moments.
