"You are lucky to have an employee like Leslie Worley. She helped me re-do my notary bond form and made sure the bond was issued accurately and that I received it. I so appreciate all of her efforts.”

                     Jill A., Washington, D.C.

 “I can honestly say that your efforts went beyond the call of duty and certainly way beyond any other surety group in the country. Believe me, I was applying and getting denied without so much as a courtesy call back. With your help and persistence, the bond I needed was able to be secured to appease our state comptroller. It was a pleasure working with a caring professional. Once again, thank you for your helping save my 10 year old café.”
