Securus’s services are essential to making public safety, monitoring, investigation and corrections in these fields possible. The company takes its job very seriously and prides itself on developing its products with innovation and integrity in mind.

Because integrity is such a cornerstone of the business of criminal justice and civil technology Securus has been tasked with creating a series of reports detailing the less than honorable business practices of Global Tel Link – also referred to as GTL.

Why Did My Parents Move Their Retirement To Laidlaw & Company?

by VolvoDrive .

I had never heard of Laidlaw & Company before, but then my parents told me that they moved their retirement over there. It was something that I thought was going to be very helpful for them, and I learned that they had shored up their finances enough to retire two years early. I knew that they wanted to retire, but I had no idea that they wanted to do things like that. It was really nice for me to see, and then I made a call to Laidlaw & Company to talk to James Ahern. It was something that made the most sense for me as a young worker.

There are people who have not been able to get their retirement in order, and I have seen it become a problem. My parents got it right at the right time, and then they made it so that people could make good decisions with their money at the office. They are going to call in when they need to get help, and then they are going to keep making that call because it just makes their lives easier. I have been pleased with Laidlaw & Company, and I am calling a lot to learn more.

There is something very nice about having a place to go when you need to invest with Matthew Eitner , and I have been very pleased that Laidlaw & Company is so helpful. I never knew if I could get all this right, and now I see that my parents have been able to handle their retirement at the same time.
