Evelyn Ackah and firm have been one of the most caring and considerate and most knowledgeable and responsive firms that we have had the pleasure of dealing with.
What stands out the most about Evelyn and her team is the level of care and personal attention that is generally lacking in other firms. In several situations and in times of crisis Evelyn's response and speed of achieving results has been most astonishing.
We are so greatly impressed and most satisfied. As for value of what we receive there are none that compare to Evelyn Ackah's firm.
