When you think about accountants, creativity is not the first word that usually comes to mind. But, like all of the MJ partners, Mark is no ordinary accountant. He is a free thinker and that means a lot to his clients. Because Mark takes a creative approach to problem solving, you can expect true, individual attention and solutions that fit your situation. It’s important to Mark that you get the right answer, not just a cookie-cutter response. Delving into matters and uncovering those components that make your needs unique is just everyday business at MJ.
