Meet Our Team

JUSTIN E. WAY, CPA, P.C.

PROFESSIONAL CLIENT SERVICE TEAM

At Justin E. Way, CPA, P.C., we focus on developing a strong, personal relationship with all of our clients. Unlike your average accounting firm trying to do a little of everything, we have built a reputation for providing expert and specialized financial guidance and strategic support to help professionals, corporate executives, wealthy families, professional athletes, and small business owners. Also, unlike most other firms, we maintain these personal relationships through a primarily single point of contact system, with each partner heavily involved in all projects, unless the client gives authorization otherwise. Thus, you can count on an expert team member being involved each step of the way.
