    I worked at SterlingFreeman full-time (More than a year)


    Appeared to be a good company, but learned the owner had cheated government and former employees in past years.


    Important: Run a personal background check on Michael Sterling before engaging his services, regardless of what business he might be running or its name.

    You will find:

    - 30 years of state and federal tax liens
    - Consistent problems with the law
    - Eviction
    - Bankruptcy

    Credit rating is horrible. Michael owes the IRS, former employees, CPA firms (clients), vendors, landlord and friends/associates. He even borrowed money from employees and did not repay!! He cheats, borrows and does not repay client CPA firms under the terms of the Client Contract Guarantee.

    Michael Sterling walked away from the business in November 2018. Claims he was in hospital - but no one believes this since there were sightings of him on more than one occasion. View his Facebook page and you'll see he spent money on an engagement ring for the girl, more than half his age, that he left his wife for last year. Yes. He bought a ring and expensive pedigree puppies instead of paying employees or clients!!

    He may be attempting to restart SterlingFreeman, perhaps under a different name. Don't fall for his lies and tricks. Work with this man at your own risk. He will NOT stand behind his guarantee or his word.

    Advice to Management

    Stop running a business - you've failed and trashed multiple business ventures.
    Get mental health help.
