Your analogy of DB plans to being on the Titanic before hitting the iceberg is an apt one — we still have time to turn it around, but not much time!”
– Maryann Motza, PhD, State Social Security Administrator, Public Employees’ Social Security Program, Colorado Department of Labor and Employment

“I will definitely keep you in mind for my mediation clients. Rarely in mediation do we go the “full route” to valuations, but I like to bring someone in to explain the process in layman’s terms to help them make choices. I particularly admired your ability to take difficult concepts and present them in an understandable way.”
