Contact Cyrus

The Welcome Group was able to move forward with negotiations with total confidence because we were represented by a firm that had been there 50 times before. Bill Boyar knew one of the principals of the New York firm that was furnishing the $300 million and his advice to us was priceless. BoyarMiller is the best.
