As demand for his services grew, the accounting firm expanded to include more talented tax preparers with experience in a variety of industries. Today, Robert Hall still diligently works to prepare taxes and personally trains each tax consultant in order to achieve a higher standard of quality. Because of his tireless efforts, the Los Angeles accounting firm has grown to become an industry leader that prepares roughly 10,000 tax returns annually.
