"What a pleasure to work with Michelle on my Fair Housing Act issue. My county previously limited the number of group home beds to eight. Michelle wrote a comprehensive letter outlining why the FHA might suggest their limit was not enforceable. She assumed the county's integrity and desire to comply with the law; they responded in like manner.  With her help, I was able to increase the number of residents allowed in my home from 8 to 16!"

I feel that utilizing your feasibility study market analysis is exactly what the primary lender we use for funding the RALs is asking for. I’m seeing that this is a very important piece of the puzzle to speed up getting funded.

"I cannot recommend him highly enough . . . with Brian’s guidance, the Anti-Corruption Commission and Office of the Prosecutor General have had some notable successes.  For example, Timor-Leste has improved its ranking on Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index from 143 to 113, and the Office of the Prosecutor has successfully prosecuted 20 corruption cases."  

-- Jim Benedetto, Department of Justice/Department of State, U.S. Embassy, Timor-Leste.


We are very grateful for your time and experience, as you helped us push past the bureaucracy. We can’t thank you enough!

"Dr. Pinkowski stood apart from the other expats for the respect with which he treated the lraqi people. In return they treated him with a loyalty that I have not seen since the U.S. came to lraq in 2003. As a result, he was able to accomplish any task with the team of Iraqis that other expats would struggle with. I know that I and my Iraqi colleagues will remember him as a very positive American role model to follow in the future. And I do believe that America is a great country because of such great helpers and hard workers like Dr. Pinkowski."

-- Col. Tom Bishop, USAF, Iraq/PRT Team Leader.
 


"With minimal support, he managed to essentially track down a Provincial Council-in-exile . . . establish and develop contact with the members, and succeed in producing a superb relationship as their coach and mentor."

-- USAID Mission Director Jim Hope

"I was particularly impressed with his systematic approach in launching a technical assistance project under very challenging circumstances (e.g. almost by himself) and within a very short time frame. Yet he succeeded in setting up an office, hiring staff, building ties with local counterparts and initiating technical support activities --all at once -- and to the satisfaction of the client."
