"I have received a minimum of four to five times the return on my advertising dollars spent with ServeNow.com each month. Outside of the great results, I have been contacted by legal professionals from all over the country, as well as Canada. Now in my third year, I plan on being with ServeNow.com for a long time."

"Right after getting launched on the site, I received two phone calls. One resulted in three pieces of new work. The next day I was added to a vendor list with a collection company and received 50 new pieces of work. After a hour long conversation with them I asked them who referred them to us and they stated ServeNow.com. Unbelievable!!! I have just paid for the next five years of advertising, plus some."
