The History of Our Firm

     Our company was founded in 1973 by Henry S. Wright. Henry ran the business for 35 years and in 2008 hired David L. Erwin on to assist him as the business was growing beyond what he could handle on his own.  

In April of 2010, David took over.  Since then David has grown this company over 400% in size. In July of 2014 Chelsea came aboard, and directed her attention to the internal operations of the company as well as 

client relationships.

     We attribute the company's success to many hours of hard work and commitment to our clients.  We are always searching for new ways to improve client services and encourage our clients to set goals.  

Along with client services we are constantly looking for new ways to make the tax and accounting processes more efficient. 

    Our staff is a group of highly passionate individuals who love what they do and love the people they work with. We are confident that within this office are one of the best teams in the state of Illinois.  ​
