Be sure to "Join our Community" ! This will ensure that you're a part of our mailing list and receive our quarterly newsletter and important small firm information.
We are continuing our work (while honoring others' social distancing needs): continuing to market, continuing our drawings, invoicing more often, and trying to figure out what our clients' new needs are.
