Matthews + Associates is a CPA firm that focuses on what really matters: people. We're more than number crunchers and bean counters – we provide clients with the intangibles, such as listening and understanding life's finer details, so they can make wise decisions that will have positive effects on their financial futures.
Because people matter
Our work environment encourages employees to put people ahead of "billable hours." It may sound like a simple thing, but in my 20+ years of working as a CPA, I found that people's needs were not always the chief concern.
"We're passionate about numbers and about helping people. It's easy to see as soon as you walk in the office. We focus on building client relationships, which is really the most important thing." (Carey Pinto, Litigation Specialist, Matthews + Associates)
It doesn't take long in this profession to discover that clients bring with them an array of unique circumstances. In many cases, there are things at play that go well beyond the numbers – whether it's the needs found in a family-owned business, or the struggles of entrepreneurs trying to align their professional and personal tax pictures. We go out of our way to see the world from their perspective, and provide big picture thinking that gives each client a wide-angle view of their tax situation.
"I would call them forensic accountants. They strategically know how to look way beyond the immediate picture and see how things will impact you well into the future. They really care about their clients." (Lucille McAlesse, Owner, Kells Irish Restaurant and Pub)
The freedom of being flexible
Visit our offices and you'll see that we do not employ taskmasters. Our work is self-paced, and each employee receives the support they need to stretch their boundaries, break new ground, and grow. We each work from our unique strengths, and at the end of the day everyone's contribution matters.
"We're a helping hands kind of place. You're personally involved in daily decisions, and you know that your work is recognized and appreciated." (Angela Ward, Associate, Matthews + Associates)
Being appreciated fosters greater appreciation for the work you do. Our clients reap the greatest benefits – they know that our team of committed, passionate professionals is behind them working on their behalf. In step with providing sound, above board taxation services, we are passionate about helping clients make decisions that will affect them today, tomorrow, and 10-years down the road.
"They are extremely personable, and make it easy to talk about business issues. In terms of their work, they are beyond analytical: they are expert problem solvers and know the tax laws in and out. They give clients the utmost confidence in their knowledge and services." (Lotof Shahtout, Owner, Michelle's Pianos)
We absolutely love what we do.
