What Client’s Say

Very good people to work with.
Curt H., Tax Client
I grew up in my Family’s business and now I work hard to continue its success. I wanted to choose a Family owned accounting and financial firm that shared my core values of honesty, reliability, and courtesy. Nakowicz Financial just felt right.

For the last twenty years, Marsha and John Nakowicz have helped me in multiple ways. Not only do they do the accounting for my business, they have also guided me in obtaining life insurance and taught me how to save money for my future and retirement. Additionally, the most important thing this family has done for my family is setting up college savings accounts for my children. I was able to send my daughter to Roger Williams University and my son to MTTI this year without worrying about how to pay for it. I have been and Continue to be impressed with the service I receive from them.

Marsha and John are truly caring people that are always willing to talk with you. They make good on their word that they are all about connection. If you share these Values or want real one-on-one services, Nakowicz is the best to help you succeed with your personal or business goals.
