With over 85 years of combined public accounting experience, our team has come to realize an accountant’s greatest value to their client is not as a “reporter” or “historian” reporting on events of the past but as a “coach” or “business partner” helping to plan and shape the future.


As such, at James & Springgate, PLC, the traditional accounting services such as payroll processing and reporting, financial statement preparation, and income tax return preparation are offered in conjunction with and as a measure for business strategic planning services and/or individual personal financial planning services.
