Jones&Co. | CPAs & Advisors

There are accounting firms, and then there’s us. We’re not your typical CPA firm, and we’re not your typical CPAs. We’ve experienced traditional accounting firms— routinely cold, often impersonal, and sometimes intimidating. We want to change that. As fierce advocates for building, growing, and nurturing real, personal relationships, our team of CPAs and advisors are humanizing the CPA firm experience. Our bottom line: it’s all about people and relationships first, and always will be.
