Clients benefit from our flexibility, highly personalized service, as well as constant and easy access to the firm’s principal and associates in-person, by telephone or online.

How To Engage DMI

Upon approval of the proposal, a written contract is prepared. Prior to commencing service DMI must file all Florida contracts with the state’s Department of Consumer Affairs to comply with the Solicitation of Charitable Contributions law.
