Helpful, Generous, Committed, Intelligent
We are graduate students making absolutely no money and heavily in debt. Unfortunately, an unintentional copyright infringement issue came across my table, threatening to sue me if I did not pay for damages. I did not know whether the party or their claims were legitimate or how to even properly respond. The infringement was very much unintentional, unknowingly, and the said piece of work was being used for a website that was not involved in any monetization activities. At this time, Chris came to our rescue! Realizing we had no money and we were simply naive graduate students, Chris graciously offered to review the materials we had on hand, provide his feedback/advice on how to respond to this "shakedown," and help us write the language for subsequent emails we needed to send without taking a dime. Despite being on vacation, Chris continued to follow up the issue (both through phone calls & text messages) because he understood the time sensitivity of the issue and how truly worried we were. Chris is someone who truly cares about his client and shows genuine interest and intrigue for the problem at hand. He shows ownership and commitment which is rare to see, especially for someone who is graciously helping out pro bono. I cannot thank Chris enough for getting us out of this situation and helping us avoid a pesky legal battle for something so harmless as we are entering one of the most important phases of our lives.
