Peer Review

Our firm regularly participates in the mandated American Institute of CPAs "Peer Review" process, whereby periodic reviews confirm that CPA firms are adhering to the required standards of the accounting profession.

In our firm's most recent peer review in January 2008 we received an "unqualified opinion", the highest level indicating all professional requirements are being met. Continuing professional education courses, required of all professional staff members on an annual basis, insure that they are up to date with current information, including the most recent changes in accounting and tax laws and statutes.
