“I wanted to take a moment to say “Thank You“ to Mr. Waite´s wonderful TEAM of professionals! Going into the Rental Business is certainly a trying endeavor. Without your knowledge and expertise I wouldn't be as comfortable as I am today that our new rental business will be covered in the event of any legal issues. Working with Mr. Waite was such a pleasure. He patiently answered all of my questions for over an hour to make sure I thoroughly understood all the aspects of our new rental contracts and how each clause would cover us in the event of any legal problems. You've definitely won a long term client with your professionalism, knowledge & efficiency!“
