Dan was great!
I had an interesting situation regarding being held liable for something because of the title of the position I held at my previous job. Dan went way out of his way to assist me. I called him late on a Thursday (about 5 minutes to 5), he answered my call and got working on it that night. My situation was time sensitive and he put everything together for me within 3 days. He's professional, courteous and very good at his job. From Dan's hard work, he was able to get the organization to withdraw their claim against me. Dan looks at you as an individual and has your best intentions in mind. By using Dan services you will not be disappointed with the work that he does.
