I've been a client since 2019. Brinker Simpson had traditionally just handled my tax filings, but throughout the pandemic, they helped me navigate and complete all of the paperwork for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan, the Restaurant Revitalization Fund (RRF) grant, and the Shuttered Venue Operators Grant (SVOG). They have also helped me benefit from the employee retention credit (ERC), which I didn't even know existed. Kristen McCabe, specifically, has been a gem - she answers calls and emails whenever I need her. I'd recommend Brinker Simpson and Company, hands down - they have a great understanding of my specific situation and work with me to make the best decisions for my business and our future.

I have been a client of Tom McGarrigle and Brinker Simpson since 2010. Tom has handled my personal taxes since 2010 and business taxes since 2017/2018. The service I've received from Tom and the team at Brinker Simpson has been exceptional since day one; quick turnaround time to my questions and needs, reasonable billing (not billing by the minute like I know some firms do), and complete trust. Our level of mutual trust has been most meaningful to me in this partnership. I can always trust the information I receive is accurate and all issues are resolved appropriately. I have referred family and friends to Tommy and the firm, mainly because of the level of trust we've developed over the years. Tom makes the entire process straightforward. He is a great professional who provides exceptional services.

I want to express my appreciation for the outstanding accounting services that Hillary Alexander and the team at Brinker Simpson provide. I can always count on Hillary to be professional and helpful with any tax or business questions I might have. Hillary is knowledgeable, easy to understand, and quick to respond. It is uncommon to find a company willing to go above and beyond for a client anymore, but Hillary and Brinker Simpson never disappoint. Bryn & Dane’s has built its brand as a counter-service restaurant chain with a healthful menu of smoothies, wraps, salads, and bowls. Now we have gone a step further, rebranding as Fudi Fast Food, with an all-vegan menu. Hillary has helped ‘right the ship’ for our business throughout this process and during the pandemic guided me along an apocalyptic time for the restaurant industry. We really appreciate all she does for us.

As a client for 12+ years, Brinker Simpson has continued to extend its services to me personally and professionally as my companies have grown. They provide the expertise of a large accounting firm but haven’t forgotten their small business roots.

After almost a decade of trying to find a CPA firm that understood our personal and company’s needs, we were introduced to Brinker, Simpson. Today, we are nearly halfway through another decade of success thanks to the long-term relationship we have established with their firm. Reasons we’ve stayed with Brinker Simpson: Our financial planner and estate attorney’s point of view are included in the decision-making process, we are not charged for every time we call with a question, we are not forced to accept services that we can perform in-house, they stay current on tax law changes and advise us accordingly, plus the firm gives back by sponsoring community service projects.

I have been a client of Tom McGarrigle at Brinker Simpson since 2019. At the onset of our professional relationship, my company was in the midst of a turbulent transition, affecting all aspects of the business. Tom and his team were integral components in helping navigate many of the challenges we were facing. Since partnering with Brinker Simpson, my company’s financial health has improved dramatically, and the trajectory is onward and upward. Their prompt communication, quarterly meetings, and back-office support have contributed to keeping my company on track. I cannot put a price on the trust that I have in Tom McGarrigle. I highly recommend Brinker Simpson to any organization and business owner.

I have been associated with the staff at Brinker Simpson for several years. I've always found them to exhibit a high degree of professionalism and competency while serving their clients. As a Commercial Lender/Business Banker of a local bank, I feel very comfortable referring my customers to the firm because I know their needs will be met. Brinker Simpson brings the depth of knowledge and experience needed by small and mid-sized businesses.

Our attorney’s office started raising the payoff issues and wanting to know if the funds were to be wired, etc. Based on subsequent emails from the attorney, it appears that they did not need the final payoff amounts today. We weren’t sure if you had done any work with them yet. Then we learned this morning that our mutual clients would be out of town, so the attorney had to send them the final Term and Guaranty documents with the bank attorney’s approval. It has been hectic! We very much appreciate your prompt attention and quick response to these issues. You are always there to help. With Brinker Simpson, no problem is too small. You are always willing to go the extra mile, even on a holiday weekend! Thanks again.

They have been available to assist our practice with every kind of financial dilemma.
