Tony was the key professional who crafted both an estate plan and business continuation plan which allowed a long-time high tech company in north metro Atlanta to pass from the founder to the next generation successfully. Frankly, as we began this process there was little expectation that it would be successful for a variety of reasons. Through Tony's guidance, leadership, skill and knowledge, not only was it successful but hundreds of jobs were preserved and the county retained a vital part of its manufacturing base.

Tony your hard work and outstanding communication throughout the process was tremendously appreciated. In addition, though I had no personal stake in the outcome, it was my true pleasure to know you and to work on this project with you. A great many people in Gwinnett county owe you more than they will ever realize. I will always consider you a friend.
