Wilkins Miller stepped in when we had several conflicting demands and we needed assistance with our year-end financial statements and footnote preparation. They were extraordinary to work with and quickly became a critical resource. It is nice to deal with a regional firm that is responsive to customer needs and can hit the ground running.

During a transition with our CFO position, Wilkins Miller provided immediate help with a full-time in house staff member which gave us time to find the right person. We were able to utilize the depth of their team to review and improve the efficiency of our organization. Once a hire was made, they assisted in transitioning the new person into the role which made the process smooth and painless.

The Wilkins Miller team has a level of integrity, ease of communication and knowledge that I haven’t experienced with any other firm. We utilize both the accounting and wealth management services, and appreciate the convenience and continuity that goes along with it; they are the total package. I’ve worked with them since opening my solo practice and it was one of the best decisions I’ve made.
