Highly recommended
We hired Wade Neal to handle a licensing contract. It was apparent right away that he could translate "legalese" into language a lay person could understand. He was able to streamline the agreement, remove pitfalls, and negotiate on our behalf to reach an end that was acceptable. Legal matters can be scary and it is very important to have professional help. I am very happy that we worked with him and will certainly call upon him for help in the future.

A worthwhile choice for help with contract
We've handled plenty of contracts before and managed to keep from getting ourselves screwed but Neal was able to take a lot of tangled, convoluted copyright issues and streamline our agreement into something coherent and mutual. Most importantly for us, he was able to keep pace with the awkward and unpredictable timing that characterized our negotiations. He exposed the sort of risky nuances that allow you to appreciate the difference a law degree makes. Thoughtful, perceptive, and more timely that I thought we could expect, Looking ahead at our contract we needed a lawyer as a safety net - looking back I couldn't imagine our agreement without him.
