Howard, LLP

Thinking outside the spreadsheet

At Howard, we take pride in resolving the toughest, most complex financial issues. How? By taking a holistic approach to your challenges — a broader perspective beyond purely financial issues. After all, there’s nothing more personal than your finances (perhaps that’s why our business is based almost entirely on personal relationships), so you should trust the professionals in charge of those finances. We call this approach “Thinking outside the spreadsheet,” and it’s why our clients turn to us — and return to us.

Our Approach

Attentive listeners, straight talkers, creative thinkers
First, we listen closely to your issues. Then we offer our best advice for solving them, in plainspoken language, and identify innovative ways to get from Point A to Point B — or alternatives to Point B. In fact, we may uncover hidden issues that may cause difficulties down the road. We do all this in a manner that is always personal and flexible, not corporate and rigid. (We are often told how easy we are to work with.) The constant thread through all this? Highly attentive service to you, our client.
