H2B Application
Trent was extremely helpful in assisting our small landscape company obtain H2B Certification. From the initial meeting, all steps were discussed in thorough detail, which was included in a folder to which I could refer. Trent was very honest at the first meeting that the chance of receiving certification was quite low. As weeks passed, Trent continued to request all necessary information from me in order to submit all government paperwork on time. Questions during the process were answered in a timely fashion. Being such a small company, and only requesting one H2B employee, I was sure no lawyer would want to take on such a small client, but I was assured this was not a problem. Our H2B employee arrived in Charlotte 2 weeks ago and we are grateful he is here for our fall busy season. Trent Williams comes highly recommended from Classic Landscape.
