Client Testimonial:

“In an emergency situation that recently occurred after normal work hours, James Hunnicutt was quick to understand our situation. He handled things immediately that evening and never mentioned anything about getting to things ‘sometime tomorrow.’ He spent a great amount of time through the late hours of the evening working with me to devise a strategy and plan for our situation. I give him full credit for turning a challenging and difficult situation into a positive outcome in less than 24 hours. I was extremely impressed with his quick grasp of our company and how we operate, and his extraordinary diligence to make sure we were taken care of. He is concise, thorough and takes the time to understand all aspects of a situation and ensures that nothing is missed.”
