Chantal Roberts on the CMR Consulting Logo
Hi. I'm Chantal Roberts of CMR Consulting. I am a insurance litigation support consultant, and I chose the logo for CMR Consulting based on houses with interlocking puzzle pieces. I chose this because a lot of people feel that insurance can be confusing or a puzzle. I'd like to help them put that together whether that's through my consultancy work or as an expert witness.
