Family-based differentiation

As a father/son-in-law team working together for more than 20 years, we know that our unique business and personal relationship has helped us build a successful practice. Our family-oriented practice brings great continuity to our business, and fosters a family atmosphere filled with communication and long-term relationships with our clients.

“This is not a job to us. This is an important family affair built on the trust, knowledge and relationships we have with each other and our clients.” -Robert Bourgault
