I, as well as many members of my family, have been working with Jeanne Gibson and others in their firm since the 1990s, both personally and with various business entities. In addition to full accounting, auditing and tax services, they can provide valuable advice in diverse areas such as estate planning, business operation and valuation, real estate transactions, etc. They stay current with the latest tax codes and regulation and are very professional and well organized. I find their entire group to be very welcoming and enjoyable, in short a company that's a real pleasure to work with!
