“We don’t regularly review, but do so appreciatively because of an exceptional experience: We contacted Mr. Watson with a federal procurement matter. He responded immediately and even offered to make a few calls. More, he suggested a reasonable direct response methodology as an alternate to drawing lines in the sand and legal bills. It was sound advice, gladly given without a retainer in the name of relationship building.”
