"I couldn't have gotten through this without Lynda Schauer. Not just her brilliant accounting work, but her incredible compassion, kindness and graciousness towards me. Her presence with me in court Monday was absolutely life-saving to me on an emotional level."


J. M.

"I met with Michael Saltsman after he came highly recommended to me by a business associate, and he and his firm quickly made me a fan. I am very happy with the quality of service, and Michael is so personable, he makes accounting actually enjoyable to discuss! I am a small business owner, and he makes me feel super important even while I know his firm handles large players - I never feel put to the side because of a bigger fish, they understand my personal and business accounting needs, their response time is fantastic, and they are very patient as I ask questions (and make mistakes!) while working to further streamline our methods. I highly recommend him."


Nancy M. 

"I have known Mike Saltsman for about 14 years now and consider him to be preeminently knowledgeable in accounting and tax preparation. I have referred him to several of my friends and colleagues through out the years and have heard nothing but praise about Mike. He is professionally respected by his peers and clients alike. I know that he has been entrusted with the trusteeship of many of his clients and also does expert forensic accounting for both individuals and corporations. 
I highly recommend him."


Jon M. 

"Lynda Schauer has the perfect blend of professionalism, integrity and experience. I felt I was in very capable hands when I hired her to handle my case. She took the time to listen and answer all my concerns. Lynda and her staff were very detail oriented and I loved that nothing fell through the cracks. For a very pleasant experience and peace of mind I highly recommend her."


N. C. 

"I just wanted to say thank you to Lynda Schauer for the time, patience, expertise and care she took in working with me during this divorce.  I am so appreciative and I am relieved that this process is over so that I can focus on moving forward instead of looking back"
