Reviews by Business Professionals:


 


I have worked with Renee in the recent past when I was an outside consultant for Renee’s company; working directly with her for approximately five years.  She is hard working, knowledgeable and diligent in her follow up and communication.  Renee worked with all legal aspects of contracts, tax issues and estate plans for high wealth business owners .  I found her to be a person of high character and a great pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend her and consider her a valuable asset to any team.  I would welcome working with her again.    Mark Ulishney, CPA, Case Sabatini (2/27/15)
