In addition to being a blogger, I'm also a lawyer who specializes in litigation.  My work revolves around contracts. Blogger friends have asked me to review contracts that they receive from brands, employers and ad networks because they are not sure how to interpret the terms and they do not want to retain an attorney for a three page contract.

I am here to translate contract terms and lift the mystery from legalese.  I will show you the terms that are the most important, which terms are boilerplate, and the terms that you should pay extra careful attention to.  After our session, you will feel confident reading the contracts that you receive.  In addition, I will give you the tools you'll need on the points that you should negotiate for better terms that benefit YOU.
