What makes us different?

We believe in the value of relationships. We view every client relationship like a partnership, and truly believe that our success is a result of your success. We provide personal attention to our clients and give you the assurance that comes from years of advanced training, technical experience and financial acumen.

We are entrepreneurs who happen to be accountants. So we understand the questions that keep you up at night…

  • How do I grow my company?
  • How do I maintain financial stability through the ups and downs of the economy?
  • With so many independent contractors working for me, how do I ensure my company complies with state and local tax laws?
  • What goes into a well-thought-out succession plan?

We believe in the importance of innovation within our profession, and we understand that the top accounting firms are the ones that grow and change with the client. So we stay connected to our clients and develop strategies that work for their specific business, not a one-size-fits-all model. We believe that the regulatory framework that protects our licenses and our customers does not inhibit our ability to function as an entrepreneurial partner.

Here are some of the ways we serve you:

  • We help our clients weather the storms of changing tax laws.
  • We understand how you make a profit and help with process improvement so you can maximize profits and tackle issues that inhibit growth.
  • We help define key performance indicators so that you can align business goals, strategy and profitability.
  • We dig deep into the business categories we serve so that we can help you prepare for the trends that will impact your tax position and earnings.

For all your accounting and advising needs, trust MPS, one of the top accounting firms for innovative businesses. We have entrepreneurial spirit and the knowledge to solve your most pressing problems. Contact us today for solutions.

“When we were a small company they did a great analysis of my business and what we needed to do as a company. They were very thorough. I followed that direction and it was right on target. The business exploded. I only have to worry about making windows. They’ve been there to help me grow to where we are today. “
Art Strauss, President, Midway Window and Door
“I was about to start a business in the 1985, and had written a business plan that I was really proud of. The only two people that were willing to read my entire plan were my father-in-law and Ed Mulcahy. MPS has been with me every step of the way since, and they helped as my business grew to multiple businesses, a significant amount of real estate, with steadily increasing sales. My trust in and respect for MPS has only increased over the years, and I know they will always be there for me and my family when we need them.”
