As a Certified Public Accountant, part of the responsibility of our licensure is to serve the public and provide them with specific services. They are performed with the highest degree of confidentiality and ethical standards. Having served the public for over 25 years, the most valued resource I have learned to provide is an independent opinion and advice which is determined from an objective viewpoint. Only by living up to these standards can we be satisfied. This satisfaction is felt and respected by our clients.

Response time to a client's needs is crucial. By being a smaller firm it allows me to act quickly to accomplish certain goals or provide that timely assistance. By establishing working relationships with other Certified Public Accounting firms I am able to expand my scope with respect to the size of an engagement. Experience has taught me well, thus allowing me to provide a wide array of services.
