“Dear Ivan,

Thank you for your work on our publishing agreement.  Your knowledge and thoroughness was surprisingly refreshing in comparison to other services that offered “cut & paste” contracts.  The agreement your authored for us covers many legal issues that we had not even considered, and consequently, forms the basis of a solid legal foundation for our company’s future endeavors.

Your web site, www.ivanhoffman.com, really convinced me of your knowledge depth.  Your site covers many legal topics with in-depth information at no charge to the visitor.  After visiting your site and reading your articles, I was confident you had the knowledge and background to write our publishing agreement.  In addition, you answered my emails very quickly, sometimes 3 per day.  You made me feel like I had a personal lawyer waiting to answer my questions.

Thank you again!"
