Seventeen years ago Linda and I were introduced to Vrakas as we went about searching for a business to buy. From the first meeting, we knew that this was the firm we wanted to put our trust in for our accounting and tax needs. Seventeen year later they continue to earn and deserve that trust with their professionalism and service.Mike Katz
