Most of us recognize and respect value but few of us really know how it is established. Yet, situations arise daily that demand accurate assessments. In fact, countless business and financial transactions and other day-to-day events that affect millions of people hinge on the determination of value.
That's why our work is critically important, and why we never take it lightly. We adhere to the ethical standards of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) designation requirements. Our most rigorous standards are self-imposed, and the findings of every engagement we undertake must survive the scrutiny of our strict review procedures. In short, our work is a product of professionals who approach each project with care and 25 years of experience.
As a result, we have earned the respect of hundreds of clients from coast to coast.
