Doron Tisser, Estate Planning and Tax Attorney, Tisser & Standing LLP
“Gary is a great person to know and I am tremendously thankful for Gary's insight, expertise, and attention to detail. Several years ago Gary reviewed (and thoroughly rewrote) a technology contract and licensing agreement for me. His comments on the proposed contract (which were as long as the contract itself) pointed out a huge number of disadvantages that I had completely missed. Gary saw the subtle 'gotchas' from the other attorney and was able to clarify how those clauses could be used against me. Many years later, when the true content of a good (or bad) contract is usually discovered, I was happily thanking (praising) Gary for saving my intellectual property works in those original rewrites. To top it off, he's a really nice guy too. I highly recommend Gary and consider him a true professional.”
Rob Rampley, Owner, Media Overkill
Gary, to put is simply, has been amazing. My extremely high opinion of him is elevated each time we meet and each time I have the opportunity and pleasure to refer matters to him. Without exception, I receive glowing feedback from my clients.
