What Our Clients Think

Looking back on our first year as a government contractor, it’s hard to imagine where we would be without Moker CPA . We were so much more confident in our interaction with the government as a result of having someone who ‘spoke the language’ in our corner. I highly recommend the services of George Moker and Moker CPA to any small company trying to navigate the government contracting waters for the first time.

George Moker, the firm’s founder, is a highly qualified professional, an experienced entrepreneur himself, who brings a great dynamism in his ability to craft financial systems and strategy to fit your business. We have recommended Moker CPA’s services to a large number of other entrepreneurs in our community.

We greatly appreciate George Moker’s expertise in advising us in keeping our accounting operations consistent with all the SBIR requirements. His knowledge is extensive, always up to date, and his ability to integrate new changes into the QuickBooks bookkeeping is most helpful. In his remote support sessions he is always clear, and very efficient at instructing our staff.

The level of entrepreneurial enthusiasm and support that CEO George Moker brings to his firm and his clients is an asset to any small business looking to employ the firm’s services.
