What do you like best about helping clients?
Clients often come to us with questions, issues and problems--anything from buying or selling a business to declaring bankruptcy and losing ownership of a business they've operated for many years. Clients come to us, because they need help with these matters. For me, knowing that I've helped a client in their time of need, whether it be great or small, makes me feel good and gives me a sense of great satisfaction. It makes my work meaningful.
