Been working with Chris at Midwest CPA for a few months now. Whenever we have a question Chris is quick to respond. We find him to be very meticulous and efficient in all aspects of our business. Our only regret is that we didn't find him sooner.

Chris is one of the best accountants and it’s not even close. I use him personally and for my business. He is one of the most responsive service providers I’ve ever worked with. My former CPA was great but wasn’t equip to help me as a business owner since the former CPA was focused on personal taxes. Chris has been a truly invaluable partner / collaborator on numerous M&A deals in the small to medium sized business space, providing financial due diligence to various clients that I’ve worked with ranging from a buyer of a demolition company to a buyer of a niche online goods business. LOI If you’re looking for a rock solid CPA or someone that is really good at M&A financial due diligence, look no further than Chris’ firm.
