My Firm's purpose is to help our clients to plan for and achieve their financial goals. We want you to have peace about your financial resources To and though their retirement years.
The Firm's History
My name is James E Blowers, and I am the sole owner of the Firm. I started practicing as The Firm of James E Blowers, CPA in 2002. I have been a principal of a CPA Firm since 1994. Prior to 1994, I gained experience working at a larger regional CPA firm in Albany for 15 years. With over 30 years of experience as a CPA, I have developed the technical expertise and experience to meet most accounting, tax and other financial needs of my clients.
In addition, I share office space and network with other accounting firms. While we are not formally affiliated, we have known each other for many years, and we share expertise, personnel, and other resources to serve our clients well. This enables my Firm to offer the breadth of a larger CPA firm, while being able to offer you the personal attention that a smaller firm can offer.
I recognize that the Firm serves people and their families -- even when we provide services to your business. Therefore, all we do should be with the intent to help you to achieve your financial goals to and through your retirement years. Should you place your trust in my Firm, I realize that we can have a significant impact on your current and future finances. This is a responsibility I make sure we take seriously. I get great satisfaction when a client thanks me for providing them with proactive advice and wise counsel to help them to get to and through their retirement years financially secure.
Because we understand that we serve people and have a significant impact on their current and future financial affairs, we commit to equipping ourselves so we can provide useful and affordable services to you. We meet or exceed continuing education requirements. We invest in technology to serve you efficiently. We invest in high-quality resources to proactively address and solve your financial needs.
We believe it is beneficial for you to hire a CPA firm with a principal like me who is committed to you and your family, who is readily accessible to you, and who will personally review or prepare all the work that my Firm provides for you. This limits the chance for miscommunication of important information and advice. Also, because of my continued familiarity with your finances, my Firm can proactively and effectively counsel you about most financial matters.
We believe it is important to provide services practicing with integrity and respect. This means we will strive to be honest and fair with you in all matters. We welcome clients who have this same philosophy.
As someone who owns a business, I can appreciate the concept of the benefits and our costs to you. We endeavor to keep cost/benefit in mind and advise you of them before we undertake a significant project on your behalf.
