From Clients

Gregory Patterson

Owner // Gregory Patterson Consulting

"Starting a small business can be a daunted enterprise.  Starting a new nonprofit theatre company is even more complex... Anthony was so instrumental in making sure my clients were invoiced on time and my accounting was in top shape for tax time... Anthony is very responsive, detailed oriented, organized and has helped my companies in so many ways... Wouldn't recommend any other firm or person."
