Gustavo is an excellent CPA - Thorough, prompt, and honest. I can’t say enough for how helpful it’s been to have him help with personal and business tax returns. When Gustavo is on the job you can rest assured that everything will be taken care of correctly.

Gustavo and his team make this whole process SO EASY. Incredibly responsive and with you every step of the way. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Gustavo has been great. He was responsive and quick to return my calls. He was always friendly and wiling to explain things and answer questions. Looking forward to a long working relationship. Thank you, Gustavo!

It has been an absolute pleasure working with Gustavo. I would recommend his CPA services to all small business owners. He is easy highly communicative and strategic with his approach. He has helped me a great deal with my business and personal tax returns. I will continue using his services for my personal and business tax returns.

Its always a great pleasure working with Gustavo in both my individual capacity and with my businesses. His knowledge and efficiency makes the tax process a lot less stressful for me. I look forward to working with him for many years to come.

Its been such a pleasure working with Gustavo and his team. They are thoroughl professional and really patient with me as a client who is filing taxes in three different organizations. I am grateful to be able to rely on Gustavo and trust in him to ensure everything is compliant.

We deeply appreciate the quick service and the attention to email queries that Gustavo and his staff have provided to us. Knowing little, as we do, about the complex rules of our tax situation, we are glad to rely on the services of an accounting firm that clearly knows what it is doing. We look forward to maintaining this important connection!

I have used the services of Gustavo Friedman and associates for several years and would definitely recommend their services. No question is too trivial to answer and all questions are answered very promptly. The tax returns are very professionally prepared and documented.

I would give more stars if we could. Gustavo took excellent care of us. We were referred by good friends who said he was the best and he turned out to be even better! We had lots of questions regarding new taxes/deductions after we both switched jobs - including a production job that unknowingly to us, messed up major paperwork over a whole year. He was able to explain everything to us clearly, got all of our taxes organized back in order and most importantly communicated every step of the way. He responded promptly to every call and email and was so understanding of all of our questions and concerns. We would recommend him and his team to anyone.

Gustavo and his team have done an amazing job in handling our family's estate tax filings. He has always been professional and courteous. Besides his expertise his level of service is welcoming. Any time we had a question about our project he responded quickly and knowledgeably. We could not have chosen a better CPA to handle our particular needs. Thank You.

Thank you so much for your service. For my case, our operation is in HK. I have so many unknown question in the past. But now , I am so confident do it well. Just because your service is very professional.

As a foreign citizen, filing my US tax report for the first time, I was concerned that things may be complicated. Gustavo has made it very easy for me - he was very responsive and knowledgeable, happy to help with any question, and guided me on every step of the way. Eventually the process went much smoother and quicker than expected. Highly recommended.

Excellent service with a personal touch, genuine concern that I understand the information in the tax return. Prompt to answer questions and advises in my best interest. Extremely pleased.

Gustavo is very quick to return emails and phone calls and he does not hesitate to spend the time necessary to explain any issues or questions. I recommend Gustavo to anyone looking for a knowledgeable and through accountant.

Gustavo Fridman is one of the best in his field. He is extremely knowledgeable, his work product is outstanding and he is very responsive. It is a pleasure to work with him, especially around tax season! I will recommend him to my colleagues.

Gustavo and the Fridman & Associates team are premier tax experts. They helped me navigate complicated federal and state tax returns for the past 3 years, most notably in 2018 during convoluted tax law change. And my returns are far from simple! I've bought and sold personal and investment real estate, started and ended businesses, dabbled in the financial markets, and Gustavo never batted an eye. Gustavo is a dedicated, earnest professional. He is remarkably prompt responding to my concerns and genuinely personable in conversation. In his own way he's reassured me that he's done everything possible to navigate the tax code while remaining firmly behind my best interests. This level of commitment is why Fridman & Associates are a cut above the competition when it comes to customer service. Gustavo is thorough, attentive, and impressive with his acute memory of my unique filing considerations, even after months between conversations. I'm sticking with Fridman & Associates!

My wife and I are dual citizens (US and Canada) and are currently living in Vancouver Canada. Our US tax filing has become increasingly complex over the past few years and we employed Gustavo and his team to review and refile for the past few years. The service provided was timely, thorough and extremely professional. We are looking forward to working with Gustavo and his team for years to come!

This was our first time working with Gustavo on our tax returns. He made us feel very comfortable and he was very responsive to our questions. He replied to inquiries by phone or by email very quickly and provided complete and thorough answers. We felt very satisfied with his level of expertise. We will definitely work with him again. Philippa, Encino

As always, we appreciate Gustavo's knowledge, support, and timely responses in preparing our tax returns. We look forward to working with him again next year, and whenever needed. John C.

We have used Mr. Fridman's accounting services for the past two years to prepare our federal and state tax returns. In that time we have been impressed with his speed and efficiency and, in particular, with his promptness in answering queries. We much appreciate his expertise in handling the complexities of our mutual fund accounts and his recommendations for handling refunds and needed future payments.

I’ve worked with Gustavo over a decade and across different companies. Gustavo has been instrumental on the consulting, compliance and audit defense fronts. I highly recommend Gustavo for companies and individuals looking for an excellent tax professional.

I have been very impressed with Mr. Fridman’s level of service and expertise. He is very thorough and patient…he called me back within a half hour of me calling him, and set me up with an appointment right away. He fixed my tax matters, and explained to me exactly what he was doing and how I could prevent future problems…all was explained in a language that I could understand. I would highly recommend Mr. Fridman to anyone who needs assistance with his/her tax matters!!!

Mr. Fridman has been handling my returns (business + personal) for several years now with great accuracy, efficiency and integrity. Mr. Fridman's vast knowledge in both large and small scale business taxation has yielded great results in minimizing my dollar returns and provided me with the strategic financial direction that helped my business grow in several key areas. I am endorsing Fridman & Associates.
