Who We Serve

In addition to helping U.S. businesses, we cross international boundaries and serve clients in Mexico and Korea.The bulk of our client base includes:

  • Closely held businesses
  • International businesses
  • High-net-worth individuals
  • Nonprofits

Many middle market companies feeling dwarfed by mega-sized accounting firms find us to be a sound and cost-effective alternative.

How We Help

Our focus is understanding each client we work with – from their background to where they want to go in the future – and tailoring services to help them get there. Through our local business connections and our affiliation with the BDO Alliance, we are able to help business owners address all issues they face.

By maintaining high performance standards and investing in qualified personnel, ongoing training programs and quality control procedures, we have attained solid growth over the years.

WHAT WE DELIVER

Quality is the primary focus on our services. We vigorously adhere to our quality control system and actively participate in the peer review program of the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).

During every peer review independently conducted on our firm since the 1980s when the program was developed, we have received “clean” reports. That means we are in compliance with the profession’s quality standards.
