What Our Clients Say

Kathy List President & CEO - Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati

“When we were searching for a new audit firm, Chamberlin Owen CPAs was highly recommended by a fellow non-profit CEO. We’ve utilized their professional services since 2017 and with their guidance and consultation, we’ve improved our financial management internal controls, updated and tightened financial practices and streamlined administrative processes. The improvements have allowed us to be more competitive with local, state and federal grants. Their guidance helped us weather an extremely unpredictable pandemic year and they were instrumental in assisting us with the Payroll Protection Program. I consider John and his staff as trusted advisors and am grateful for their competent guidance, wise insights, organized/efficient/exemplary work process, and friendly and approachable manner. I know we are in good hands.”

“I have known John for over twenty years and have been a client of his team for several years. I have mostly used their auditing services for the City of Florence in the past. However, due to the level of service, expertise and complete satisfaction provided in that area I have recently engaged Lori for specialized tax services as well. They provide the personal touch and proficiency that I have come to expect from their regional firm.”
