  • Jordan Charles Urness

    I worked with Eric for approximately 2 years. When I think of Eric a few things immediately come to mind. First, Eric cares about his clients and the work he is doing. Such care and concern is not as common as you might think. Second, Eric is an efficient worker. Eric is committed to getting the answer correct in the most efficient manner, but he does not cut corners. Finally, Eric is someone you'll enjoy working with because he is very personable. You won't regret hiring Eric.
