5. Robert Whitney, EA, ChFC - Whitney & Gore Financial Services, Framingham, MA

"Engaged, knowledgeable, responsive.  I work in finance so am often self-critical of "why didn't I know that?" and "why aren't I doing this myself?" But Rob at W&G is always very measured and the depth of his expertise makes me well aware of the value they add. I don't love the portal they use (feels like filling out the tax forms myself), I'll say, but on balance it's worth it to get the end result, of feeling confident that all is done well.  I am a recent client and had used another firm for years - this is a welcome shift in service levels for us." - Heidi S.

6. Gregory Rhines, CPA - Wealth Builders CPA's & Consultants, Westminster, MD

"Wealth Builders are the only ones I trust to handle my finances from investments to tax prep. To say this business is "in their blood" is an understatement. We're talking about generations of knowledge that have been passed on is something you can't get from a college education. Their approach is steadfast on tradition with cutting-edge ideas that are only introduced after a time of proven results. And their prices are not only comparable but often times beat the seasonal "brands"." - William W.

Lorra and the folks at LBE Consulting have taken my difficult and sometimes complex multi-state returns and have done an outstanding job of mastering what is needed to provide me the lowest tax bill for the last couple of years.  I do business with them via the phone and the internet.  I definitely appreciate their accurate and organized approach, as I have called often and the notes in my file allow for any of their tax professionals to assist me.  When my schedule changes or I have issues with the tax reporting agencies, Lorra jumps in to reschedule as many times as I need and goes after those tax reporting agencies to eliminate my issue.  One issue that was my mistake took two years to resolve due to the IRS records being in error.  Yet each time the IRS sent me a letter, Lorra and the team at LBE tirelessly and aggressively worked with the IRS until the matter got resolved.  I might add they saved me the $3000 penalty.  As a result of it, LBE also does the tax returns for some of my business partners and colleagues and I regularly recommend them to people who are in need of a qualified, accurate, and efficient tax firm. I love it and rely on LBE to meet my personal and business tax needs.  They're a top-ranked firm in my book." - Charles B.
