A present of gratitudeSummer has finally “spread her hand” here in Atlantic Canada. The weather is so nice our team decided to close the office early last Friday (yes, we often have to close early for bad weather, and we also — about once a year — close early in the summer when there is good weather).

The importance of taking a proper affidavit

Written by
During your career, you may be called upon by a friend, cousin, brother, sister, mother-in-law, or others you have known for a long time to swear an affidavit or notarize a document.
