“My partners and I have worked closely with Keith Simpson over a period of 20 years with respect to a large property which we owned in Connecticut. Issues relating to this land, which we wanted to subdivide into building lots, involved many difficult environmental matters, including extensive wetlands, potential flooding, and very steep slopes. This required skilled and sensitive planning not only for the subject property but for all the neighboring properties as well. In dealing with government officials and all parties involved, Keith exhibited outstanding technical knowledge which he brought to bear in a businesslike yet friendly way. The obvious respect shown to him by other professionals involved in the matter attests to his understanding of the complex issues and his ability to deal effectively with a diverse group of people. Without qualification, I recommend Keith Simpson.”
