Architecture and Engineering (A/E)

The personnel that our company has dealt with at Withum have been very knowledgeable and professional in all aspects. They present themselves very well and can do what we ask with little instruction—and do it right—every step! I am very impressed with them.

— Mike Kerwin, President, SSP Architects
We initially chose WithumSmith+Brown because of their excellent reputation and experience. Their initial assignment, completed under stressful conditions of litigation, clearly showed the firm’s superior abilities. We did not hesitate to choose Withum for subsequent accounting needs and we will continue to give the firm our highest recommendation to others in the business community.
