"Through the EASE program I received valuable graphic design services that included logo design, packaging design, marketing videos and print advertising. (EASE) work in this area is not only outstanding from a design point of view, but also timely and affordable. It is beyond any expectation I could have had."

"Medical Justice has utilized this program for design, research and implementation projects; it has been tremendously helpful. As with most entrepreneurial companies, one of our most scarce resources is time- there is always more to do than there are hours to do it in. EASE allows us to bring additional resources to projects as needed in an expeditious manner. The quality of work is excellent and the program is an outstanding resource,"

Shane Stadler,
former VP Marketing
