We actively participate in the Peer Review program sponsored by the North Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants. Such a review by an independent CPA firm assures that the services our clients receive meet the highest standards of the accounting profession. We have completed eight reviews since the program started, and all reviews resulted in unqualified opinions. This is the equivalent of an “A+” in the non-accounting world.

As the success of our clients has grown, the size of our firm has also grown. We have experienced growth over the last 5 years and are excited to continue to grow and adapt our firm to meet the changing needs of our clients. Please contact us and let us know how we can meet your needs or the needs of your organization.
