    I represent Not-for-Profit Organizations. I was the Chief Operating Officer of two large multi-million dollar NFP's for 8 years. One of these entities operated two radio stations, six HUD 202 retirement centers and a k-12 school. The other aired weekly TV and radio shows on multiple media outlets.

Competence, Brilliance, and Dilligent
I have Known Mr. Brynteson for many years. I first met him in a social setting at a men's prayer group, then later had the privilege to use him professionally on several occasions. Mr. Brynteson has set up two non-profit corporations that I am a part of in record time. His competence, speed of action and knowledge in the area was astounding! I have also had the privilege of serving on two boards with this gentlemen, and his input to the board is always relevant, and his advise is taken very seriously. I believe that Mr. Brynteson has the integrity that he would not take on any case in which he feels he could not do an exceptional job for his client. I certainly could recommend this gentlemen and am privileged to publicly give him a 5 star rating. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like a more personal recommendation. Dr. Jacob G. Caraotta Chiropractic Orthopedist, in private practice since 1986. (815) 398-4004

Review of Mark David Brynteson
When I finally called Mark Brynteson after being mired in a nasty situation for several months, Mark immediately took charge and directed every reponse on my part. He explained the problems clearly from a legal standpoint and also provided options when they were available. One day when I was quite sick and flat on my back, Mark called to follow up on a problem. When he finished, he said, "Today I'm not on the clock". Under the circumstances, that consideration was highly appreciated.
