Services

 

Our firm offers a wide range of services to our individual and business clients. Because our firm is relatively small, our clients benefit by getting personalized and quality service that is beyond comparison.   We believe choosing a CPA is no different from choosing a doctor, attorney or financial manager. The client must feel that we are knowledgeable, have an understanding of their needs and that we will continue to provide them with personal, yet professional, service. The firm does not charge for initial consultation.  Below we have listed the services that we offer to our clients along with a brief description.


As the list below is by no means all-inclusive, please feel free to inquire about a service if you do not see it listed. If it is not a service we provide, we would be more than happy to refer you to a qualified professional.
