"When I exhausted all alternatives, I contacted Chandler & Knowles, CPA. They were very professional. I met with Rochelle Chandler in the afternoon. Next day, all my work was complete and their charges were half of what I was quoted by some bookkeepers. They demonstrated absolute professionalism and accuracy in their work. My next step will be meeting with them for my financial planning."

"We were pretty far behind on some estate, trust and llc taxes that have all gotten jumbled. Rochelle was able to jump right in and start getting things sorted out. She didn't try to upsell me on other services, was frank with what she needed, and incredibly prompt and responsive to my concerns which was a need of mine given some previous dealings with other accounting firms. I really appreciated that."
