Meet the Team
As we have grown to 12+ professionals, and have recently moved to a larger office space, McIlvain & Associates has never wavered from Sandy’s original concept. We understand the fear and apprehension that can be involved when choosing a new CPA firm. Our clients appreciate the home-like feel of our offices, the friendly voice that answers the phone when they call, and the timeliness of getting that call returned.
