I would like to express my appreciation to both Bill and Ashley for their support and insight into these very important transactions. I also appreciate their willingness to provide me their thoughts and recommendations!

Personally, I view Justyn, Ashley and Dan O. as trusted members of my team. Their work was always top notch and their (often daily) counsel exceptionally valuable.

Maxime Lemaitre CEO & President, Mattrix Technologies, Inc.

Excellent service especially whilst managing a much larger, equally complex financing. I have great confidence in both Bill and Ashley and appreciate and trust in their advice.
