I had worked with two bookkeepers before Borbala. The first one was able to balance my books, but she wasn’t able to guide me with financial decisions or strategies. She couldn’t generate reports or give me the big picture I needed to grow my business. So I turned to a certified QuickBooks Pro who although she had no expertise working with law firms, assured me that books were books, regardless of the type of business. Big mistake! She was non-responsive, over three months behind, and blamed me for not giving her the “tools” she needed to do her job.
By the time I handed my books over to Borbala, they were in complete disarray. I was at my wits’ end, but I had no illusions that she would be any better than my previous two bookkeepers. Boy, did she prove me wrong and restore my faith in the idea that I could not only understand my books, but I could use them to make decisions about my business.
In less than a week, Borbala had reconciled the first five months of the year, correcting my old bookkeeper’s numerous mistakes. Suddenly, the numbers started to make sense! In another week, she had balanced the three months’ worth of delinquent accounting. When she originally gave me the timeline, I was extremely skeptical, as my last bookkeeper had never met a deadline she found worth keeping, but Borbala delivered. I was thrilled, and it took no further thought whatsoever to hire Borbala as my accountant, CPA, and CFO.
Borbala consistently gives thorough, detailed instructions of what she wants and why she wants it. She never asks for extraneous information, and she knows exactly what I need from her. What I especially like is that she’s the expert, guiding me, and making my life easier. With my last bookkeepers, I always felt like they were waiting on me to make decisions without the information I needed.
Now, I feel much more confident about my present and future financial picture. She holds me accountable to managing costs, maintaining a budget, and monitoring my accounts receivable. With Borbala’s help, I can make smart strategic decisions about my business without fear of causing financial harm.
All attorneys should have a top notch accountant, CPA, and CFO. And if you want one amazing individual who can fill all three roles, you want Borbala.
