Why did you decide to specialize in serving government/nonprofit clients?
“I have always admired the passion and dedication that employees of nonprofit organizations have for their organization’s mission and goals. Very often these employees are underpaid and overworked but stay committed to their cause. Working with nonprofits enables me to assist these organizations and feel as if I am giving a small part back to the community through their efforts. Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer’s similar dedication to these organizations encouraged me to grow this niche.”
