“I have a relationship with Chad Martin that has been years in the making. He understands my business and personal tax needs and listens when I ask questions. He has earned my respect. He also provides very complete advice and counsel on issues relating to tax matters and financial planning. He is a ‘Trusted Advisor’ – something really in my experience can’t be taught or assumed – it’s a client-to-advisor relationship.”
