CRI: Your CPA Firm

CRI is a family of CPAs and business advisors who value getting to know our clients professionally and personally. This knowledge helps us deliver on our passion: advising them through their most critical financial opportunities, challenges, and transitions.

How do we accomplish delivering this guidance? First, we are one of the fastest-growing firms in the U.S. because we expand our service offerings to evolve with our clients’ personal and business needs. For example, we guide individuals in properly managing taxes, planning estates, formulating wealth management strategies, and more. We also provide auditing & attestation, accounting, tax, forensic accounting, consulting, merger and acquisition (M&A), and investment banking services to businesses of all sizes. This variety of service offerings combines with our commitment of getting to know our clients, and the result is tailored client service.

We believe that our consistent year-over-year growth since our formation in 1997 illustrates our ability to deliver what our clients need to achieve their goals. We invite you to choose us as your CPA firm—and experience it for yourself.

National Strength

CRI’s national strength is rooted in the breadth and depth of knowledge from 1,900+ professionals with a variety of specialty designations – many of whom have experience working at national CPA firms, as well as private businesses across many industries. By combining this expertise – which rivals that of national firms – with our understanding of entities of all sizes, we are able to scale our services to your needs.

We then expand our capabilities with a two-fold approach. First, we train our team members regarding upcoming changes within the profession that may impact our clients. In turn, they can help clients implement innovative solutions to plan for these new developments. Secondly, CRI is a member of PrimeGlobal, one of the largest global associations of independent accounting firms, that provides us with access to even more specialty and international services.

Southern Roots

Why is it so important to us to develop long-lasting relationships? Because our decision making is local—and driven by partners you know and trust. Our firm values of client service, respect, and integrity reflect our Southern heritage and inspire a culture that is all about delivering excellent client service. At CRI, we make our clients feel at home: a place where everybody knows their names and has their best interests at heart.
