We have a new phone system!  

We are pleased to announce that an integrated phone system has been installed in both office locations to increase efficiencies in communication, particularly between our two offices.  You can still contact us using the same main numbers 518-828-3346 for Hudson and 518-622-9820 for Acra.  However, along with the new system came new extension numbers for all staff.  The staff page now reflects these changes.  Thank you and we appreciate your patience as we work through this process!
