“I can’t thank The Hurst Company enough for their outstanding work. I purchased my company from a publicly traded company, and the books were in complete disarray. I searched for an accountant that I could trust and count on to do the right thing - The Hurst Company is THAT company, and has been spontaneous and ready to help in any way they can. I consider the firm my partner, and have always received professional and courteous service that is above reproach. It is my desire to do business with The Hurst Company indefinitely.”
