Firm Mascot / Therapy Dog

Justin rescued Reagan from a shelter over 10 years ago. The rest is history! Reagan spends most days lounging around the office waiting to greet clients, and loves to go on walks around downtown so he can visit his 'regulars' with tasty treats waiting. Reagan is a real therapy dog, and has frequently comforted clients and children who are in times of great stress. He'd love to get a hug from you, and would love a treat even more!

Reagan doesn't have email but you can send treats!
