Robert Clark, Okemos Schools
“We have been a Maner Costerisan client for over 25 years. They know the education industry better than anyone else in our area and I truly value the guidance they provide. Their professionals have the knowledge and expertise to handle any situation that comes along and they are always on top of the latest developments affecting educational organizations.
Although Maner Costerisan primarily handles our audit work, they have assisted us with several other specific projects and are fully committed to keeping us moving in the right direction. I appreciate their responsiveness, honesty and continuity. We have a comfort level with our team at Maner Costerisan that I don’t think we could duplicate with any other CPA firm.”
