What our clients are saying about us.

"We made the right decision when we chose James Hamlin & Co. as our accounting firm for both our personal and business needs; we have 3 active businesses in Lake County.  The Hamlin team is efficient, professional, accessible, and responsive.  The personal interaction I've had with the staff since 2009 is ultimately what sold me. It's obvious there is a 110% work ethic and the client's needs are priority.  When I ran into some issues unique to my business, James Hamlin & Co.'s quality customer service came through for me answering all concerns.  The client portal feature is user friendly and a great way to see and store quarterly reports, tax updates, and remain current.  We utilize the Payroll Department, as well, and couldn't be more pleased. James Hamlin & Co. has brought me into the 21st Century and given me and my family peace of mind."

“I've been a client for more than 12 years. And for good reasons. The Accountant(s) and the bookkeeping staff have had very little turn over. In my book that says volumes for an organization. In the very few times I had need to speak with a partner, they were readily available. The management and staff has always been responsive to my requests and questions, and very knowledgeable to all business and personal accounting and tax related topics.

I highly recommend them, they handle my accounting and tax preparation for my business and my personal filings."

"Just wanted to let you know what a positive experience it has been to work with Your Payroll Department. The fact that you personally came to our office to train me on the software was great. I'm confident that anytime I have a question, I know that I can email or call and I will have an answer in a timely manner. The fact that I don't have to worry about cutting paychecks, payroll taxes, quarterly and end of the year reports and W2's lets me concentrate on running and expanding American Claims Service. I look forward to a long business relationship with Your Payroll Department and would highly recommend your company."
