PARTNERS' MESSAGE

After leaving Deloitte & Touche, Andy and I led separate careers for almost eight years. We have enjoyed our profession, and we strongly believe in the value of competent financial stewardship. After only brief contact in that eight year span, we met for dinner one night to catch up on news about our expanding families. We joked about one day starting our own firm in order to set our own priorities, choose our own clients and occasionally wear jeans to work. That idea quickly gained traction and in only a few months the table was set for Smith & Wooton LLP to open its doors.

These are precarious times for any new venture but Andy and I are confident that our services are widely needed and our rates are highly competitive. All we need to do now is get the word out that we have opened for business. Our clients will benefit from unbeatable value and unmatched personal service because we want to keep our clients happy. We believe that the only way to build our practice is to impress you enough to tell others about this unique opportunity to start a relationship with a growing CPA firm. Consider this a personal invitation to call us for a free introductory consultation.

We look forward to building our firm by demonstrating our value to each client. We are keenly aware that no firm is entitled to your business year after year and that is why we will work hard to earn your business, your trust and exceed your expectations each time.
