On December 16, 2008, our office moved to 301 Pennsylvania Avenue, Avondale, PA, to a larger and more convenient location, pictured below.
A graduate of Susquehanna University where she was President of the Student Government Association and the student member of the Board of Trustees, Lisa Angst Long, CPA, was a staff accountant and senior accountant at Price Waterhouse in Philadelphia before she became the Corporate Accounting Manager at CRC Chemicals in Warminster.
Lisa’s own professional accounting practice started in 1986 in her home on Phillips Mill Road in Penn Township and quickly grew too large to be accommodated there. Within a year, she moved her office to Harmony Road and three years later to Jennersville. In 1993, faced again with a practice that was out-growing its space, the firm moved 126 West Evergreen Street in West Grove, pictured below. Once again, a change of location happened on December 16, 2008 to 301 Pennsylvania Avenue in Avondale to a site that we will help us better meet your needs.
From the very beginning, the firm’s practice has been built on Lisa’s conviction that the southern Chester County area needed a CPA practice that emphasized a person-to-person relationship with every client while offering a full range of professional accounting services to small businesses and individuals. The growing list of satisfied clients of the firm is testimony to the wisdom of that philosophy.
In 2000, Jason Homick, CPA, was added to the team in order to maintain the prompt level of quality service expected from the firm.
In May 2003, Melisa Stevicks, in an administrative role with the firm since 1998, graduated magna cum laude from Neuman College with a degree in accounting. She was promoted to staff accountant.
With two CPAs, accountant Melissa Stevicks and our support staff, the pleasant voices behind the telephone, the firm offers a full range of accounting and consulting services to business clients in various industries and annually prepares individual income tax returns for numerous states across the country.
We offer a full range of accounting, tax and consulting services and to an area that extends over south-central and southeastern Pennsylvania and into Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey, requiring us to be familiar with tax and business regulations in all four states.
Our list of clients includes small and relatively large corporations, proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs and hundreds of individuals. To them, we offer business services with a depth of personal attention rarely found in CPA practices. Our principals, associates and support staff are trained to recognize and treat each client as an individual case. No client is merely a number. Rather, all clients are entitled to and receive the personal attention of Lisa, Jason and Melissa. No tax return or project leaves the premises without Lisa’s complete review.
Our firm is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and as such, participates in the organization's quality control program of having our work reviewed by another qualified CPA firm on a tri-annual basis. We are proud to have attained the highest ratings on our reviews since our inception. In addition, our professional staff completes at least 80 hours of continuing education over a two-year period in order to remain current with the ever changing tax and accounting laws and developments. We stay current, so you don't have to!
To summarize, our firm functions not only as tax advisor, but as a consultant to help our clients to succeed. Our motto is "Your Partners for Success," and we take it seriously.
