CONTACT 

Please contact me so we can discuss your needs. I can explain the process and answer any questions. 

After we talk, I will send you a proposal, ask for a retainer, and will bill upon completion of the report. I will revise the report once based upon comments from the local jurisdictions, if any, at no additional charge.

I'll always be available to help if needed.
