"I have always been interested in other cultures, languages and history. It's amazing to travel and meet people who have the same mindset although they live in another society. Now I have Clients all over the World!"
"I love to work with my Clients. A strong man can feel anguish because some legal or tax matter is unsolved. It's nice to see him leaving with a big smile."
"Perhaps the funniest moment was the one when an elderly lady in her 90's forgot to take her walker-rollater with her after all paper stuff had been done.
