"We switched to Rulien + Associates five years ago and have never looked back. They manage all of our accounting related needs for our four restaurants. They’ve always been great about explaining complex topics in ways that we can understand and a result, we are much more accounting savvy.  Their billing is extremely fair and we get great value for our money because our accountant is fast and thorough.  We enjoy and look forward to our meetings with them and trust their advice! We recommend Rulien to anyone looking for experienced and capable accountants."
