All Client Testimonials


We have worked with Vrakas for over 20 years. They have always provided us with timely and accurate information, recommendations, and services related to our taxes, corporate accounting, ESOP plan, and 401(k) plan. When we have a question or concern, they are always quick to get us the information we need. We appreciate the great relationship we have with the whole Vrakas team!

Attorney Stuart R. Schroeder

I have done work with Vrakas for over 35 years. As I developed my law practice in Waukesha county many of my business clients were already using Vrakas. I referred any number of clients to them for accounting, tax, and valuation services and have never been disappointed. When I started my own law firm in Brookfield they became our accounting firm and my personal accounting firm which they are to this day. While many of the local quality accounting firms have been gobbled up by regional or national firms, Vrakas remains locally owned and operated with the expertise to compete with anybody. That’s a great combination.

Molded Dimensions

17 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 years later they continue to earn and deserve that trust with their professionalism and service.

VPI Corporation

I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Holmes and John Staehler for over 10 years and have been very satisfied with both the tax and audit services that they and the Vrakas team have provided. Vrakas has always been highly professional, knowledgeable, reliable and responsive. When I first acquired the company, Vrakas conducted a cost segregation study which resulted in certain assets being made eligible for accelerated depreciation, which boosted our cash flow in the first few years, when it was most needed. They have been a good strategic partner.

Steve Martin
