Melvin was an absolutely life saver when it came to my tax mess. I came to him practically in tears. He was able to set up an immediate appointment with me to discuss my taxes from the previous year. Because of my lack of knowledge and mess of documents he was on a time crunch to get things done within days of our meeting. Not only was he able to get things done in time, he found a savings! I look...

It went better than I ever could have imagined! Mel Creighton postponed the original audit appointment, prepared all of my 2015 business expenses, organized them, met with the IRS agent on my behalf, and was able to settle on an that was a tiny fraction of what I was expecting to pay. I am seriously amazed at what a great job he did.

My husband died last year. I was a wreck, missed filing and couldn’t find any of the financial paperwork. This year Mel came to the rescue and took me under his wing. . First he calmed me down. Then gave me a form to fill out to organize my thinking and tell me what he needed. He was responsive to all my questions, no matter how dumb. He was fast. Within a week I was ready to file. Mel is a consum...

He put me at ease and said that he could help me. He did not sugarcoat a...
