IMPORTANT NOTE: As we are all trying to navigate the Shelter in Place order set by the State of CA. we will be modifying our operations to conform, while still completing all necessary work for our clients. Over the next several weeks, our office will be closed to the public. We will have a minimal rotating staff in the office daily to facilitate the completion of all essential work. Many of our staff will be working remotely from home, while not in the office. We will be accepting work to be completed via mail and electronic delivery, or you can place your physical files in the mail slot of our front door to be collected by our staff in office. During this time, our phones will go to voicemail, but they will be checked daily. If you need more immediate assistance, please email your preparer directly. All of our staff’s email addresses can be found on this website.
