“We have been a client  for a number of years and have used them to prepare our personal, business and rental property returns. We love the personal service, friendly office and the fact that they are proactive. We have used large and mid sized firms in the past and have found that Adam is much more thorough and caught many errors previously made by the larger firms. We would highly recommend this accounting firm.”
