Richard Sparkmon has been my CPA for over 40 years, and I know our long term financial success and growth is attributable to him and his wise counsel. He became our CPA in 1976 when my husband was going into a new business and has been there for us and then for me during all that time. He has always provided savvy business and financial advice and excellent tax management. He kept us straight with the IRS during lots of ups and downs—whether in the economy or business.

I have worked with Richard and Beverly for over 30 years. I am an owner/operator of 5 McDonald's Restaurants. Richard has been a great partner assisting me from a new entrepreneur to an experienced business owner moving toward retirement. He is excellent in ability to provide a well thought out pathway to many complicated business issues.
