    WHAT CLIENTS SAY

    "No one beats Bill's level of expertise or quality."
    "He is on par with the best in the business."


    MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY

    "I have three primary tenets in my approach to client service: first, to fully understand, to the extent possible, their industry and their company’s particular place in that industry; second, to give them very direct, unvarnished advice at all times; and third, to use humor whenever possible to build the relationship and keep everyone grounded during stressful times."
