    -Piers B.

  • "First, the experience was excellent. I called and made an appointment to see a CPA. The receptionist was warm and professional.

    -Brett M.

  • "I met with Glen in the Fall to have him look over my last return prepared elsewhere to see if he saw any mistakes that I might be alerted to by the IRS again in the future.
