A Comment from J. S.
In a time of great confusion and sorrow, Mark was there for me and my children as a friend and a shepherd through a very painful time in my life. Mark was always respectful and supportive and was able to take me by the arm when I most needed someone to trust and guide me. He was always two steps ahead and had an almost prescient ability to know exactly what was going on and what to expect next every step of the way. I always appreciated Mark's creativity and professionalism and his skill in finding the best possible solution for my entire family in a reasonable and balanced manner. I always felt like we were a team and I was always well informed throughout the process and Mark was always available to listen and to help. I am truly glad that I met Mark and have already recommended him to other people going through the same difficult experience and will continue to.
