After 10 years in this business my testimonials list became a bit long , so I decided to produce the summary of quotes below, putting the full versions into the categories on the left. (If you wish I can send you a contact list of former clients should you want to check anything with them directly.)
Re-reading all of them I could not help writing a page about my feelings about clients and why I like them.
