"Keith, In my thirty-three years of running a business, I have had the opportunity to work with many legal and professional organizations. A lot of companies tout great service and attention to detail but fail in their performance. It is so refreshing to do business with people, such as yourself, that really do perform!"

“Dear Keith: In all my 35 years of tax practice, I have never seen another tax professional handle a matter as impressively as you handled the IRS audit of (name of client’s) estate.

Your knowledge, communicating ability, and perseverance are to be greatly admired. But I was more impressed with your willingness and ability to work under severe time pressure and do whatever was necessary to get the job done.”
