Privacy Issue
I consulted with Mr. Whaley on a privacy issue. Mr. Whaley took the time to thoroughly research the issue and provided me with the best, and likely the only, solution to resolve the problem. I very much appreciate Mr. Whaley's knowledge, expertise, and his willingness to provide me with a resolution to the issue.
