Physician
I am a H1B physician and recipient of the Conrad 30 program. I required an employment contract review in a timely and professional manner. Barrister Claussen reviewed and assisted to negotiate my contract. He was also able to pick out specific clauses in the multi-page document that could have been disastrous for me if overlooked. Fantastic Lawyer!

Excellent and Affordable Service
Kyle Claussen is very professional and was able to increase my pay rate and benefits through his negotiation techniques. He made me more comfortable to sign my healthcare contract after negotions from his redline edits. He reviewed my contract in a timely manner despite short notice. His service was very affordable. I highly recommend his services.

Excellent service
I consulted Mr. Claussen to review my employment contract for an ophthalmology position. As someone coming straight out of fellowship, I knew basically nothing about the process. Mr. Claussen was very patient in explaining the contract components and knew a lot about what is typical for the profession. He was also very prompt and professional at answering additional questions over email. I also really appreciated how flexible he and his office staff were at scheduling calls around my (annoying) fellow schedule. I highly recommend him.

Excellent Counsel
Physicians are often at a disadvantage when discussing contract offers from large health systems. Mr. Claussen was timely and professional. He provided valuable insight and discussion regarding the contract at hand. I felt much informed and ready to move to the next level of negotiation and ultimately contract acceptance after Mr. Claussen's astute guidance. I have referred him to colleagues and also plan on utilizing his expertise again in the future.

Physician Contract Review
Kyle reviewed the contract I received for my first job out of fellowship. It was easy to set up an appointment with him (first one being a phone call) and thereafter getting in touch either via phone or email was a breeze. He responded promptly to the vast majority of my emails, and I never waited longer than a day for any response. The review process was thorough and he gave unbiased advice during the time we worked together. I also had paid up front for unlimited contract review, thinking that I was going to receive two separate contracts, but then found out later that it was only one contract. Because of this, Kyle's team refunded me the difference between the two amounts (at my request) without any difficulties. It was great working with Kyle and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to have a physician contract reviewed. The price is very fair and the process is easy and thorough.

Health care contract - first job!
I found Kyle through Resolve Physician Agency and signed up for multiple contract reviews. He really guided me through the negotiation process and was easily available when I had questions. This can be a stressful experience in a way, so it was nice to feel like I had "someone in my corner" when negotiating with a healthcare conglomerate. In addition, I had read quite a bit about healthcare contracts beforehand and also have a lawyer in my family (not contracts) that I had review things. Kyle still caught stuff and made great suggestions that would have gone missed otherwise! I really recommend him as a healthcare contracts attorney. Great experience.

Profession Excellent Service
I have used Kyle for multiple negotiations. His expertise, advise and diligent work has been incredible. His services has more than paid for itself. His work negotiating some of my contract re-reimbursements netted me significantly more money that was way more than his firm's fees. Not only that, he was able to remove some unfavorable language that would have put me at a long term disadvantage and that was invaluable. I highly recommend him to all my colleagues.

Best Physician Contract Attorney
I hired Kyle Claussen to review and negotiate my employment contract. Kyle did an absolutely thorough job of looking over the contract, pointing out areas of concern from a legal standpoint and negotiating changes for me with the health system's attorney. Additionally, Kyle provided me with a comprehensive view of the regional and national medians for compensation, which were used in my negotiations. Kyle was very knowledgeable and I appreciated his availability and expertise in this process. I will definitely use this group again for all contractual endeavors.

He missed very important information in the contract.
I got to know him through a physician company's website. He was the lawyer to assess the contract for doctors. I had a very hard time with the contract at the previous place so I asked him about the money obligation particularly when I leave. I asked him at least a few times because I was anxious but he did not mention "Promissory Note", which is the huge money obligation. Recently, I decided to leave and found this "Promissory Note". I'm shocked because I may have to pay "several hundred thousand dollars" if I leave. I'm upset with this and got in touch with him but he does not feel responsible for this. He is easy to talk with and may be a nice guy but he did a very bad job for me. To do a good job or be a good guy is a different category. I probably have to pay much more than I received as a salary. I'm in crisis now... Next time, I will hire a lawyer with better quality as a lawyer.
