Professional References

Jim and I were Executive VP's together at a Houston based REIT. We worked very closely together as the company was transitioning to a C corp. Jim is a very knowledgeable, dedicated and hard working individual. Although I left the company a short time after I arrived (2008), Jim and I remained in close contact for the past 7 years. Jim is a very fine attorney and friend.
