DeMott & Smith CPA’s, P.C. was formed in 1988 to respond to the needs of clients not being effectively serviced in the large CPA firm environment. To fill this need, Thomas J. DeMott and Stephen L. Smith left their partner positions at a large local firm to form DeMott & Smith CPA’s, P.C. For over thirty years, we’ve operated our CPA firm with an approach to client relations and firm management unlike any other firm, large or small. Our Partners pride themselves on being accessible to their clients. Their approach includes not only financial concerns but personal and family-related issues as well. Our goal is to listen to our clients and understand their needs. These commitments, in addition to our exemplary technical skills, explain why many of our clients have worked with us for over thirty years.
