John did my personal taxes this year and was able to correct an error for me. He was very professional, extremely timely and a joy to work with. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an accountant!

I had a complex tax situation on my hands, I had no idea where to go or what to do, I didn't want some stuffy suit and tie man to handle my taxes, I was lucky that a friend recommended John. John is warm and friendly and was always there to pick up the phone, day or night and answered any questions/concerns I may of had. I trust him 100%. He honestly wants the best for you, and will work hard to achieve the best possible outcome. His rates are pretty fair also, I would definitely recommend him!

Needed to find a new accountant for 2015 returns after some negative experiences with our previous one. John has proven to be everything the other guy was not - responsive, flexible, thorough, prompt, and to the point (i.e. you ask a question, he gives you a direct, informed answer, which is exactly what I want - no BS). Seems very knowledgeable about tax law (kind of what you hope for in an accountant!). He provides you a really extensive tax organizer to fill out, which was very helpful to me in determining what documents I needed to obtain, plus potential exemptions / tax implications of various things I have going on that would never have occurred to me (and the old accountant would never have asked). My old accountant never asked me to do any prep work before we met ("just bring whatever documents you get in the mail" is all he said), which should have set off warning bells...

You can tell John values your business - I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to get in touch with him, and how quickly he got back to me. Unlike many of the places I looked into when researching accountants, he really is customer focused. Additionally, he was the only one who was willing to meet with me and provide an exact cost for my returns prep (which was very reasonable) - the others just gave a wide range (several hundred dollars difference) and didn't seem interested in even speaking until I'd signed an engagement letter for an unknown cost. Given my trust issues with the last accountant, the free consultation and upfront free were definitely reassuring. Also happy that he works with business clients throughout the year - i.e. doesn't disappear until next tax season like some accountants, so if I need to reach him, I'll be able to.Quite satisfied with this year's tax experience and glad I made the switch.

John has worked for friends, both business and personal, and they have been very happy with John's work. When I had an IRS need, I chatted with John and he understood and worked through some complex and sensitive family issues to process paperwork for a very satisfactory outcome. In fact, in his investigations with the IRS, he found other issues and dealt with those issues effectively and promptly too. He's knowledgeable, very diligent and concerned, and he's and nonjudgmental and confidential with sensitive issues. John is now my Favorite John, and he will always do my taxes.

My husband and I recently contacted John to help us with a complex tax situation. He was amazing! He is very knowledgeable and professional. John helped us save thousands. I highly recommend his services!

Tricia A.

John saved me over $10,000 with the IRS!!!! This alone should make you want to work with John! I found John through Yelp, and reaching out to him is one of the best decisions I have made.

John has work as my CPA over the past year and the quality of work has consistently been superb. He answered any questions I had, and when I had any doubts he provided solutions. John works efficiently and hard for you. He stays in communication with you every step of the way assuring for the best results!

You can't say enough good things about John. This, along with his knowledge as a CPA will give you the comfort of knowing you made the beat decision possible. I will definitely recommend John to family and friends. Or anyone needing an accountant! Simply the best!!!!

John helped out with our taxes and did excellent work. He's a professional dude that knows his stuff and was able to process everything quickly, too. Can't wait to visit him again in 2016!

John is as good as it gets for small business and personal accounting. We have been in business over 15 years in multiple states, and never once has our CPA traveled to us. From the moment we initially spoke with John, he wanted to meet us on our turf, in our business, so that he could get a better idea of what it was that we did, in order to better serve us. That blew us away!

John is professional, prompt, polite and fun to work with. He's diligent in his preparations, and was even able to fix mistakes from previous years without making us feel like we had been mislead by our previous CPA. John has worked hard to provide us with best practices to keep our books on the right track moving forward. As long as we do business in Chicago, John Griffin will be our CPA!

John helped me with my tax filing and did an excellent work. He was quick and professional. I give him my highest recommendation!

Richard L.

If John Griffin were a super hero his name would be 'Captain Get's Sh!t Done'!! We found John on Yelp & he had great reviews, plus he's walking distance from home so it was a no-brainer. But after having worked with him I would definitely burn gas to continue to do so & I would recommend others to do the same. John is easy-going & very knowledgeable. My boyfriend & I had quite a bit of correspondence with the IRS & he stayed on top of everything, even when we were slacking off & he was always available to answer any questions. His fees are very fair & he deserves every penny of what he charges. Oh yeah, he also saved us over $10,000 with the IRS!!!

Melina F.

John has done my taxes for a number of years now, his knowledge of the tax code actually found money in my return to pay for his services. He responds to every request like a professional...because he is one! I would not take my taxes anywhere else.

Andrew K.

John has been extremely helpful with getting our small business up to date with our finances. We tend to be a little lazy and John stays on us until the job is complete. He is very accessible, honest and I would highly recommend his service!

Trista K.

John has done my taxes for a number of years now, he is someone I can trust and has become someone I have referred to my family and friends. He is very smart and is very quick and accessible. I find him to be very fair and very informative. I am happy to have found someone to prepare my taxes and I know they will be processed correctly.

Maria C.

My husband and I were referred to John through a family member whom has used John for several years. John was very friendly, informative, and kept in constant communication throughout the entire process. John was very quick and efficient and finished our taxes earlier than he promised. We will definitely use John for our future tax preparation. Very professional.
