About Us


Business Depends on Us

Our accounting firm is called on to work closely with individual clients as they pursue a broad spectrum of business ventures. During the past 20 years, we have successfully managed assignments and projects that range from business acquisitions, to cost accounting programs, to business turn-arounds.

The diversity of situations is dictated only by client needs. We are proud of the track record that we have set. We are gratified that clients have come to us and that our consultation, accounting work, and client responsiveness have resulted in their success.

  • Arranged a job cost accounting system for managing a program for a major, $3 million urban redevelopment project that included the construction of 30 homes.

  • A client came to us with tax lien issues. We successfully reduced the tax liability and had the liens released.
  • We help our tax clients get current with their tax filings.
  • Over the last 20 plus years, we have developed business relationships with area banks. These relationships proved to be instrumental in obtaining financing for many of our clients.
