Connecting Taxation and Financial Services.
Often, a financial advisor and tax professional are the two most trusted professionals in one’s financial life. At Denise M. Knight & Associates LLC, our mission is to combine the two into one, using our specialized knowledge to help our clients achieve their individual financial goals. We work with a wide range of clients, whether they are business owners, families, or individuals at all stages of their career or approaching retirement.
As an independently managed firm, we are in a unique position: we can offer a wide array of services and products typically found at a large firm, but offer the personal care and communication of a small practice. We focus on building long-term client relationships by striving to make clients feel welcome and part of the family.Contact Us
