Our clients say

I’ve been a client of Plante Moran’s for more than 18 years. During that time, they’ve helped me with a variety of projects from audit work, tax returns, and New Markets Tax Credits. The team is knowledgeable, helpful, and can shape a deal that works for all parties involved. I also appreciate the continuity of staff – some of the Plante Moran partners I work with today were interns when I was first introduced to the firm. During my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with the Big Four firms and can honestly say I prefer my experience with Plante Moran. The firm is large enough to bring all the knowledge and experience you’d ever need, but more accessible and committed to serving the client.
