“Growing up in a family of Small Business owners, it wasn’t unusual to work early mornings and weekends at the family restaurant. I have great respect for the work ethic of small business owners and appreciate the needs and challenges of owning and operating a small business. I believe this upbringing gives me a unique perspective to better understand and serve our client’s financial and tax needs.”

James is a co-owner of PJF Tax. His background at one of the "big four" accounting firms gave him the expertise to be the tax manager and handle all cash flow planning for PJF clients. James is also an all-star and CPA. (Pretty much the same thing.) 

“Growing up in a family of entrepreneurs, I have an appreciation for hard work and integrity. I’m a firm believer that most great things in life do not come easy, but those who are willing to sacrifice and put in the effort can yield amazing results. Drawing upon these values and experiences provides our clients with a product and service that is truly distinguishable.”

“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy.” They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
