"When we first started working with Patricia Kassel and her staff I knew immediately it was going to be one of the best business decisions our Company made.  Her questions and immediate responses have proven this over and over.  Our business is unique in many ways for accounting purposes, Ms. Kassel made it her mission to understand.  It is always difficult for any business to open all their financial information to any outsider but we never doubted the integrity, honesty and trust worthiness of Ms. Kassel or her team.


We are very appreciative of all the hard work Patricia and her staff has done for us, it has literally changed our company.  We recommend her to anyone considering one of the most dependable, accurate and trust worthy accounting firms I have ever experienced in our 17 years of business."
