"The most vital, fastest growing segment of the current economy is in the entrepreneurial business community. Most of these companies want the kind of expertise that big accounting firms offer. But they want to tap into it at a price and with an accessibility that they expect from a small firm. We are small enough to guarantee client accessibility, along with a competitive fee structure that's cognizant of business realities."
