NEED 8A ASSISTANCE? WHY US?
There are quite a few 8a consultants across the United States. However, when there is legal trouble and disputes from the SBA, many of them cannot help you. Many companies come to us when other firms make mistakes and can no longer address concerns from the SBA. We help to minimize the issues up front. Many companies offer guarantees of getting certified. Given the subjective native of 8a application scrutiny by the SBA, no consulting firm can assure you that you will become 8(a) certified the first time around. We have also successfully challenged the SBA in many high-level cases. For example, see the case of Argus and Black that is now cited nationwide.
