Jeff has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Liquidating a company is an incredibly stressful and emotional process, yet Jeff was supportive and guided me through the process every step of the way. I have no hesitation in recommending Jeff and his team should you ever find yourself in a similar situation. I've come away from the process feeling like I've been well taken care of and confident going forward into this next chapter.
