Client Testimonials

Ultimately, the proof of our value manifests itself in one important way: the experience of clients. Here, you can read about some of the business challenges our clients face, and what we’ve done as their CPA.

Brooks Brothers helps their customers be buttoned up. FML does the same for Brooks Brothers.

“FML partnered with us on an issue related to an error by our 401(k) service provider. This error required significant, detailed calculations to correct participant account balances. FML helped us work through the calculations, and they were very responsive to the urgency to get the balances corrected. Additionally, they helped us craft the correct disclosures for the Plan financial statements. They have the expertise to solve the issues with an approach that is practical and straightforward.”

– Michael Dunn, Senior Director, Finance, Brooks Brothers

Junior Achievement helps young people succeed, FML helps them succeed.

“FML has a ‘can-do’ attitude. We hired the firm as we were facing what seemed like an impossible deadline for a filing. They not only met the deadline, they were thorough and responsive throughout the process. FML is a highly professional firm. They clearly care about our organization and our people. As a non-profit that is working to improve the lives of young people in this region, we are delighted to be working with a firm that has a big heart and cares about its community.”

– Louis Golden, President and CEO, Junior Achievement of Southwest New England

VeruTEK products are good for the environment. FML has been good for VeruTEK.

“FML identified an area where our company could qualify for a tax credit, due to the nature of our business. Following guidance provided by Bill Claffey, we ultimately were able to document a case which was used by FML to support the filing for a significant tax credit. Our company was then able to request the tax credit be exchanged for cash, which benefitted the business. FML is an outstanding accounting firm. Their staff is very personable and easy to communicate with about any topic. They have quickly addressed urgent matters, stepping in at the 11th hour to ensure timely resolution.”

– Karen Short, Controller, VeruTEK Technologies

FML deploys precision to help Hoppe Technologies create precision machined components.

“It is common for companies like ours to have Controllers/CFOs who understand finance, IT and accounting, but not tax services. I believe FML fills in the gaps very nicely. Other firms are larger, but FML provides the same guidance, access to research, and makes the commitment to understand our business and people. As a small private company, we challenge all service providers to deliver the same type of service that we need to deliver to our Fortune 500 customers, and FML does just that for our audit and tax needs.”

– Eric Wisnefsky, CFO, Hoppe Technologies

FML makes sure not a penny is wasted at Valet Waste.

“Following our spin-off from our former parent, FML left no stone unturned and discovered a significant amortizable intangible balance. They then made a case for that balance to benefit Valet Waste entirely instead of it being split between Valet Waste and our former parent. In addition, FML assigns highly qualified people to our account. Their associates are clearly experts in their field and quick to respond. They are always looking for opportunities to overachieve. FML makes us feel like we are their only client.”

– Bill Clarke, CFO, Valet Waste, LLC

While eWayDirect leads in email marketing, FML leads in helping to spur its growth.

“In one introductory phone call, Lisa LaSaracina identified three ways to bring significant non-dilutive growth capital into the business through previously missed tax opportunities. This capital allowed the company to fund the launch of a new product line. I’ve never seen anything like it before. FML delivers real value. Over and over again. On both the audit and tax sides of their practice, they consistently find ways to help identify, resolve and avoid issues. I know I can count on FML for results.”

– Alan Hurwitz, Chief Operating Officer, eWayDirect
