“Paul is everything that any client would want his or her adviser to be. I had the benefit of Paul's generous support, guidance and wise counsel for more than 12 years... No problem was ever too tough for him to tackle and he is impressively fast at providing solid and practical solutions, no matter how complex and abstruse the issue… Paul possesses another attribute, not commonly found, that of emotional intelligence. This makes him a very valuable asset when dealing with reputational crises and positions.”
