Our Services


At Cripps & Simmons, we are committed to providing the highest quality of work at a reasonable cost. We believe each client deserves to pay only for the services they receive, so we do not have a set pricing schedule, nor can we quote prices before meeting with new clients.

For new clients, we offer a complimentary initial consultation which is used to gather information and discuss the client’s objectives and possible solutions. At this time, we are usually able to provide an estimate of the cost to provide the services agreed upon. One exception to the complimentary initial consultation is that we charge a fee of $200 for initial consultations regarding tax controversy matters. Returning clients are usually charged an hourly rate for services rendered; for some services, an estimated flat amount may be provided.
