I highly recommend Lori A. Carlino’s accounting service. Lori has been my CPA for the last 14 years. She has worked with me since the incorporation of my audiology practice in 2001, and has pointed out how I could reduce taxes and boost my income in legitimately creative ways as my medical business grew. Lori is always there to answer my questions when I need advice about the cost effectiveness of new office purchases or how to do effective tax planning for my small business. – Dr. Mary Kay Uchmanowicz, AuD., CCC-A, Owner Twin Rivers Hearing Health Inc.

Lori has been my accountant for more than 10 years. During this time I have enjoyed her unsurpassed service and knowledge of tax law.

I have been Lori’s client for many years, beginning when I owned an insurance agency and continuing through two career changes. Today, I am semi-retired, having begun a private law practice when I left the financial services business eight years ago.
