My wife and I have used Marcus, Fairall, Bristol for several years now and have been extremely happy with their timeliness, professionalism, and overall product. Turn around time for any email is usually just a few hours, even during the height of tax season. Never had any issues with our tax returns and their accuracy is 100% all of the time. I was referred to David Marcus by my uncle (another CPA by training), so you know you can trust the recommendation of one expert to another. I've referred several friends to David Marcus and I've heard great reviews of their experiences with the firm. No doubt we will continue with David Marcus into the foreseeable future.

I don’t know where our small business would be without the support and accounting expertise from Marcus, Fairall, and Bristol. We have been thriving as a small business since 2005 because of the financial and accounting knowledge of the accountants at MFB. They are responsive, professional, ethical, and experts in their field. You can ask any question and they will provide you with accurate and informed accounting information. They are accountants other accountants would seek. Yes! They are that good. If you are a small or mid-level business I would 100% recommend them. We feel very fortunate to have been referred to them 15 years ago. – PPS a Veteran owned business El Paso
