In 2005, ML decided it was time to add consulting to his resume. “I wanted our firm to be different from most consultants I had encountered over the years. We are focused on creative solutions to your issues but we enhance the experience by excellent customer service. We are different in that we will be with you the whole way as solutions are implemented.” We pride ourselves on individualized resolutions and approaches as one size does not fit all.
