We know that when you first become our client, you take a leap of faith and extend your trust. We realize that your trust is something that we must earn over time, by acting in your best interest and doing what we say we’re going to do, and by being transparent in our actions. When you work with us, you should expect and will receive certain ‘givens’ from day one and throughout the relationship we build with you.
