Comma Sense Editing was fantastic! They helped me review a large piece of written work, making thorough, thoughtful and helpful suggestions regarding grammar, syntax and structure. They are very friendly to work with and have excellent customer service. The final product was professional and polished.

Stephanie was recommended to me by another professional editor as I had to meet a close deadline, and she did a great job in editing my PhD dissertation in a short period! I happily recommend her to other PhD candidates!
