Meet Rich

“My father and one of my brothers are CPA’s. I will always remember my father saying to me, “As long as there is a Congress, you will always be employed.” How right he was. There are new tax packages every year, even if they are just Technical Corrections. It always stays interesting. One of my favorite things about this job are the people I work with. I know of horror stories from other firms where Partners “backstab” each other and employees are poorly treated, but we have the opposite of that environment. I like that my clients are honest and hardworking people. They ask me to be assertive with tax issues, but never to go past that. They feel that I am reliable and hardworking. A client once told me, “Rich, I can sleep at night because I know that you are staying up to resolve my tax issue.” That meant a lot to me. In my spare time I enjoy reading, spending time with the family, and my son introducing me to fishing.”

Rich holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management with a concentration in Accounting from Towson University.
