My decision to hire StarAct LLP to handle my bookkeeping and to provide guidance to help maintain the overall health of my business, is one of the best decisions I have made since opening my business two years ago. I have had two other accountants who made huge mistakes with my books, were afraid of technology or were just plain unresponsive. Roland reached out to me right away when I posted my request on Thumbtack. He had positive reviews and a background check which are excellent signs. I am a Thumbtack vendor so I KNOW what to look for. He even went so far as to drive to my location in New Jersey from the Bronx to show me that he was serious about gaining my business. Roland got to work right away on assessing the condition of my books and had solutions within days. He is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of bookkeeping and tax preparation and has already helped me save money! StarAct uses the latest technology which makes it so easy for me to do my small part in the bookkeeping process. Within three weeks, StarAct had my 2015 books cleaned up and ready for tax time AND Roland came out to my location once again to review the books with me. The partners in this firm are all very well-educated and have a thriving accounting firm. Yet, they treat every client the same and make you feel like you are their most important client. They pride themselves on their level of service and responsiveness. Their rates are reasonable and fair. Based on StarAct's level of service, knowledge and responsiveness, my husband and I have decided to retain StartAct to handle our personal tax preparation and my husband plans to use StarAct for his own business as well. I would give StarAct 10 stars if I could!

Ana Santiago is a professor in the College/University Spanish department. She engages, teaches, and trains her students in comprehending the well-known language of Spanish. She goes above and beyond her duty to make sure that her students do not try to fly through the course but she makes sure that they really understand what is being said and done. During my time in Professor Santiago’s Spanish class, she made me feel at ease because I didn’t know how to speak Spanish at all. She was able to make me feel calm because she knew what it was like to be in a new country and not know how to speak the language (English, American). Whenever I was wrong, she would give me another chance to try and think hard about the correct answer. She would constantly make us recite things in Spanish, and because of it, I have been able to make nice friends of the Spanish speaking background. Her classroom etiquette is perfect. She doesn’t allow anyone to be rude and get away with it, at the same time she give the utmost respect and love a teacher/professor should give to students. I don’t think there is any one thing that Professor Santiago could do to become better. She is loving, caring, strict, but fair. She has all of the qualities a professional professor in academia should have. If anything, she should make students recite more things in Spanish, like situations of emergencies, birthdays, Christmas songs, and some things that could help one to get a job if the job requests a bi-lingual employee.

Rev. Luis was very responsive, kind and professional. He took the time prior to our wedding and meet us to understand our backgrounds. He showed up early for the ceremony. His speech was very appropriate, professional and funny (we requested that). He also took the time to incorporate some of our experiences into his speech. We highly recommend Rev. Luis Barreto as an officiant.

    Lacey did an excellent job on my resume. She was quick to respond to my emails and stayed in contact through the whole process. She was conscientious and professional. After listening to my detailed needs, career background and intentions she expertly combined my skills into a clear, clean, simplified and professional document. I can’t say enough positive things about my experience. She truly articulated my background in the way I was hoping into a professional document with all the needed pieces to stand out to potential employers. I have had many more responses with my new resume. I would defiantly recommend her services!


    We are a full service Background Screening and Drug Testing company. Why Work With Us? Our Focus is on Protecting Your Business or Organization...but the Bottom Line is ROI. While there are very real benefits to background screening involving personal safety and company reputation, the truth is a business owner likes to know that the expense of background checks pays off in dollars and cents. Our experience has shown us that the return on investment for the screening process is huge. In fact, you can weigh the cost of screening a new employee against every single potential downside expense and realize a profit in the balance. Consider the potential cost of: Discrimination lawsuits Workplace violence Employee theft Company scandal Training costs of bad hires Lost production Identity theft Intellectual property theft A single incident in either of these categories can be damaging to a business. While background screenings are a real expense, their cost pales to the potential loss from any one of these dangers. We know the challenges facing every business and organization. We work to keep your screening costs down by using our own proprietary Web-based search interface and training you or your representative to perform the searches. While we can do the searches ourselves and are always available for questions and assistance, having your own access to the search site saves you time and money. We have also ensured that the quality of the results is exceptionally high. The searches are comprehensive and intelligently designed, and each negative result is researched and confirmed by a trained investigator. Our customized search packages can be modified and fine-tuned to serve your needs—growing and adapting as your company grows. As an employer or as a human resources professional, you have to make vital decisions about potential or current employees in a limited amount of time. You may also have to comply with a bewildering variety of state and federal regulations regarding safety and privacy. And you have a business to run! The Denton Group, LLC Can Help. Our computerized search packages are customized by industry and further refined to meet your needs. They are fast, accurate, discreet, and cost effective, with access to billions of records through hundreds of thousands of databases in 50 states and 200 countries. They can even be performed by you or your representative on our state-of-the-art web search interface, saving you time when you need the facts fast. 10 More Reasons We Can Save You Money Third-Party background checks are costly. Background checks access vast databases in thousands of different locations. Large screening companies charge top dollar to perform their searches, but we train you and allow you to access our Web-based search interface directly, saving you time and money. And we are always available for any assistance you may need, should the occasion arise. Résumé fraud drains your resources. Over half of applicants put false information on their résumés. Discovering this early allows you to terminate the application process before you incur additional expense and wasted time. Employee theft endangers your company. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce estimates that employee theft costs American companies nearly $40 billion per year. Because an employee has greater access to your resources, they are 15 times more likely than a non-employee to steal from you. This loss lessens your competitive edge; it also threatens to put you in the one-third of all business failures that happen due to employee theft. Hidden costs of bad hires can drag your company down. According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the cost of a bad hiring decision can exceed 30% of the employee’s potential earnings during their first year. For management candidates, the figure is much higher. If you fail to carefully screen applicants, you may end up with employees who: Are unqualified qualified to perform their work. Exhibit work habits out of line with your company’s standards. Possess attitudes and personalities that create conflict with coworkers and lower morale in the workplace. Have inappropriate expectations which eventually lead to low productivity and great dissatisfaction. Liability issues can threaten you with huge settlement costs. Employers can be sued and held liable if they “fail to use reasonable care in the employment selection process.” If it is determined that you should have known about potential risks an employee posed, you can be held legally liable for their actions and the consequences—to other employees, to customers, to stockholders, and to the general public. Workplace violence is a terrifying reality. A study by the Society of Human Resource Management showed that 57% of companies reported that a violent incident in their workplace over a four-year period. Two million American workers are victimized by workplace violence annually, costing employers $36 billion. The average award in lawsuits resulting from workplace violence is $1 million. What would be the impact of a million-dollar settlement on your business? Our screenings help reduce this threat to your workplace. Compliance issues complicate the screening process. The Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) sets standards for employment screening and privacy considerations, with substantial penalties for non-compliance. These standards include various disclosures you must make before, during, and after the background check has been performed. Our automated searches adhere strictly to FCRA guidelines and we provide you with checklists of your responsibilities in implementing those searches. Intellectual property theft is a time bomb. Intellectual property theft extends well beyond loss of patents and designs or counterfeiting of products. It also encompasses your marketing strategies and retail plans. Such theft costs American employers billions each year. Careful professional screening can help protect your trade secrets and other proprietary information. Employee access to information increases your vulnerability. The smaller your company, the more responsibility each employee generally has. This may mean access to financial records, banking data, employee files, and customer records. Even small companies can have credit card and identity information on thousands of customers. This makes you vulnerable to identity theft schemes and devastating lawsuits if identity information is compromised by a dishonest employee. Some criminal rings even plant employees to use legitimate businesses as the base for criminal activities. Federal anti-discrimination laws can be used even by unscrupulous applicants. A great fear of many employers is that an applicant who is turned down will sue under anti-discrimination statutes. One of the strongest defenses against such legal action is a consistent standard of background screenings for each position. Our screenings help you attain that.
