Staffords have been my go-to professionals for all my accounting needs for the past 10 years. Their breadth of knowledge and attention to detail has saved me a lot of time, not to mention thousands of dollars.
I used to assume that someone became an accountant because they lacked the charisma to succeed as an undertaker. That perception changed when I met Campbell Stafford. Blessed with a keen mind and the soul of a poet, Campbell is a delightfully outgoing polymath who takes the time to get to know his clients.
