Tremendous Asset To My Small Business
Chris was an invaluable resource as I went through the process of redoing my business contracts. He was more than willing to answer all my questions promptly and consult with me over the phone. I never felt intimidated or like he was "talking over my head". I definitely plan on working with Chris in the future.
