See What Our Clients Say About Us


I switched to Hinske & Clarey LLC in 2014 and have been most pleased with the service and professionalism provided to me. I have a growing construction company and felt I was not receiving the tax planning needed to prepare and estimate my quarterly tax payments.  It was important to me that we didn't get hit with a big tax bill at year-end. The planning provided throughout the year and the administration of my payroll by Katie and Nora has given me peace of mind and allows me to focus on building houses, instead of worrying about taxes.  I have and will continue to highly recommend this firm. They are easy to work with, answer all of my questions and I feel I am truly getting the most out of my CPA.

Nikki has been handling our family’s personal tax matters for over a decade so it was natural that she was one of the first that I called when I decided to form my own Limited Liability Corporation. Nikki had a list of questions for me to consider within an hour. She followed up with me on my action items and then came to the office when the time was right to train me on QuickBooks and advise me on several other important financial aspects of being an entrepreneur. She has been a wonderful business consultant, tax advisor and has also helped me get the word out about my company and my services.

My business grew faster than I realized and thankfully I had the professional advice from Hinske & Clarey to guide me along the way. I thoroughly enjoy the planning sessions at the end of each year which are invaluable in helping me make sound decisions regarding not only my business but personal accounting and tax matters as well. They are worth every penny.

Marsh Contracting

I can honestly say that moving to Hinske & Clarey three years ago was the best accounting/tax decision I have ever made. No matter the question or concern, I can expect an answer in a timely manner. They do everything for us from book keeping and tax returns to insurance audits and special accounting requests. Everyone at the firm is well aware of my company’s needs and treats my entire team with great courtesy and respect. I have referred a number of my clients and friends to them knowing that they will soon understand why I trust the team at Hinske & Clarey more than any other accounting firm I have ever dealt with.
