Virtual CFO / COO

Can't yet justify a full-time COO or CFO? We have the solution through fractional, virtual, outsourced, part-time, or freelance—whatever you prefer to call it—services, and we can work within your budget. We obviously work with companies, but high net worth individuals can have more complex environments than many businesses—it can be helpful to be run like a business.

Litigation Support

Involved in litigation, but don't want to add expensive CPA firm costs for your accounting needs to your already expensive law firm costs? We have experience providing expert witness and other testimony (affidavit, declaration, deposition, and witness) in federal, state, and county courts and representation in administrative courts and other government agencies.

Forensic Accounting

Need forensic-level accounting for small businesses or individuals, but don't want to pay CPA rates? We have been recommended and praised by CPAs for our level of detail.

Accounting Clean Up

Grew too fast and your books and records are a mess? We specialize in cleaning up complex interrelated entities to make your CPA's work on your tax returns a breeze.

Accounting Process

Tired of tracking down accounting records from multiple people? We can create a process for you and your team to have organized, secure access from your mobile device.
