PERSONAL COMMENT

I have been a principal in this firm and its predecessors for 40 years.  I have enjoyed servicing our many clients all these years and I cannot express the satisfaction that I get from all of these wonderful relationships.  The work is challenging, varied and fulfilling.  I wouldn’t do it any differently.
