We have been working with the firm for the last 5 years and cannot be happier with the service, support, and advice being provided to us. The team has always been proactive in their approach to assist us in different matters - from tax returns and R&D credits to incentive plans for our employees and review of the financial statements. Ellen Juram, Lauren Huster, Cheryl Ganim, and Chad Martin have always been not only great professionals but also the easiest and nicest people to work with.
