We review this company based on truth circumstances and given evidence by others concerned about suspect financial abuse. We approached this person as an honest individual to help us during a difficult time being so far away from our Mother, this was to prove to be a bad judgement of error on our part. I used this person to help us with our Mom affairs until we could get to Las Vegas to help with her caring when she was admitted to an assisted living facility. The reasons we choose her was for her standing in the community as an accountant and accountant to our Mom for years prior. Her relationship with our Mom was not close friend but someone who would assist our Mom her accounts and never previously involved in her caring. Even though we gave her permissions whilst POA ‘s to our Mom to do certain things, we were informed of suspect predatory acts by people who had been previously very close to our Mom For more than thirty years. During investigating a fall at our Moms facility our mother assisted by facility to sign a HIPPA in evident confused state of 92 years of age to revoke our POA status, this made way for suspect financial abuse to occur. My Husband the guardian to his parents most of his life of more than 30 years, this guardianship removed the last Eleven months of our Moms life. We were informed by this accountant our Moms confusion was evident, yet, the last Eleven months of life this person was made a beneficiary to my husbands parent life estate, this person using an attorney she knew to assist our Mom to change her last will and testament, note, our Mother had been admitted to medical hospital due to ill health just prior to changing her will and family trust. She kept credit cards, jewlery at her offices belonging to our Mom without asking our prior permissions . She also took our Mom telephone away for months replacing it with another phone She did not how to use, essentially isolating her from contacting her Son international. This person in my opinion should not be trusted with any persons financial affairs and I doubt her honesty and legal duties, values and morals. She was charging our Mom an hourly rate of 200.00 dollars to help run errands but she called herself a friend! For public safety reasons, I informed the Las Vegas Board of Accountancy of these acts providing evidence of the written correspondence given to me by those who suspected financial abuse to an elder. I would NOT use this company for financial services.

I was under the impression they would file my taxes like the previous years. They filed an extension and when i called today to see why they haven’t contacted me to do this years taxes, heather’s response that answered the phone was that they don’t have time to do my taxes this year. She even told it it was my fault since I never responded to the letter they sent out to provide my tax info before September 1st. My address has been changed when they filed my taxes for last year, yet they didn’t bother updating my file for their office. No apologies, just a cynical woman telling me to hold on to check and then Peggy gets on the phone, with a more ignorant and narcissistic attitude, laughs at me at a point, she called me rude because i was asking them to check if they have my address updated in their system, she kept telling my they sent out letters and i should have responded. Finally she said for the fifth time that they are full, not accepting another client even though I WAS their client. They have miserably failed to respond to any of my emails during this past summer. Perhaps I am not a big account for them and they are now in the business of treating people small. These two ladies that have been chosen to represent this business, Heather and Peggy, that’s treated me perhaps “better” than they treat themselves, I feel sorry for, I hope they find some peace in the hearts. Being so rude to others is a reflection of their emotional state of being. And since I am an optimist and I also believe that every thing happens for a reason, 5 hours later, My files have been filed elsewhere and I am a happy camper. I won’t change the world by posting this negative review, every profession has unprofessional irresponsible employees, karma will find them, not me. The only reason I am posting this review is because I was raised to speak my truth, positive and negative reviews. I honor the worthy behaviors and I make sure to note the unworthy ones.
