This individual attention enables him to understand and further his clients' personal and business goals.

You take your life seriously, and so does Don Paris. His dedication to his profession is further demonstrated by the formal, ongoing education he undertakes to practice accounting to the highest standards. He holds a master's degree in taxation from University of Baltimore and a post-master's degree in electronic commerce from Johns Hopkins University. Additionally, Don has taught CPA’s throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region and is a past chair of the Ethics Committee of the Greater Washington Society of Certified Public Accountants (GWSCPA).
