Very easy to use and once I understood the way in which the document works it was straight forward to tweak for my business needs.
Would certainly consider net lawman again for future legal documents.

This service was convenient and easy to access when I needed it. I did not have to make an appointment or an arrangement to speak to a legal professional.
It was quite inexpensive, as I just needed a first pass to look professional.
