What Our Clients Say:

I have found working with the professionals at Hobe and Lucas great peace of mind and confidence that a particular matter would be handled timely and appropriately.  They have a culture that delivers a feeling of trust and reliability to their clients.  They are able to take a complex concept and make it simple to understand from a laypersons standpoint. I like when a professional firm works with you to become “independent” of them rather than “dependent” on them.  They assisted us in hiring an internal accountant with the full intention that this position would decrease the need for services at Hobe and Lucas for what they were providing at the time.  The are astute enough business people to know that as a client develops trust and confidence in a firm there is always going to be other projects or consulting that will be necessary.

We have used Hobe & Lucas services since acquiring our company in 1994. Over the past 20 years they have provided various services including tax work, corporate charter review, and unqualified audits. While these services are specific to MJM they have provided similar work for companies we have acquired or sold. Most recently they consulted on the sale of a company held in our venture capital group. They are an excellent source for multiple business services all managed by well qualified people.

Hobe & Lucas and Jim Gero have been an absolute pleasure to work with. I have referred several clients and family members to Jim and Hobe & Lucas over the last 3- 4 years. Each client has been extremely happy with the attention to detail, prompt service, and thorough explanation around difficult topics. Jim and Hobe & Lucas have not only helped my clients with all of their accounting and tax needs but Jim and Hobe & Lucas have made me look better as a financial planner and helped solidify my relationships with my clients even more!

Hobe & Lucas have been preparing my tax returns for nearly 20 years.  The response time at each step of the way makes the annual “chore” very endurable.  Of particular help is the annual questionnaire which is extremely helpful for organizing all the data along with a comparison with last year’s return. I would also comment that my random and occasional questions during the year are promptly attended to.
