ADP Solutions for Payroll, Workers’ Compensation and Employee Handbooks Hit ‘The Spot’ for Local Restaurateur

Ever since she was a teenager, Cassie Fishkin dreamed of owning a restaurant – a comfortable, informal little place where people could gather for long conversations and healthy food. She told herself it would be her “retirement” career after she’d succeeded as an attorney. She never imagined her passion to be a restaurateur would outweigh her desire to practice law.
