Derek was tasked with providing security at a sensitive event-a family funeral. An unsavory character had threatened to disrupt a solemn ceremony. Derek answered all of my questions before I made a decision through email, text and phone. He did not pressure me into choosing his services, but instead, provided expert consolation and made me aware of challenges and potential threats I had not thought of. Throughout the consultation, his professionalism, expertise, and empathy during a very difficult time were a reflection on his character. For me, this contrasted with a number of other quotes I received and finalized my decision to hire him- and I was not disappointed. The funeral was made possible, without disruption, because of Derek. I cannot recommend his services enough. Anyone can hire a bouncer, but when you need an insightful, tactful professional - you hire Derek.
