Our History
Our History

Pieters and Associates was formerly Max and Pieters (and before that, Jeanne Max & Associates).  John Pieters and Jeanne Max have partnered together since 2008 with the idea that quality accounting and tax services can be provided to individuals and businesses on a personal level.  The focus of the firm has always been and will continue to be client service.  We remaining accessible to our clients at all times and am always available to answer questions and help with accounting and tax issues.  Our goal is to perform adequate tax planning throughout the year in order for the year end filing process to be a foregone conclusion with no unpleasant surprises.  In 2017 Jeanne decided to retire from the day-to-day operations of the firm but will continue to work through April 2018 on a daily basis and plans to continue to work for the firm during future tax seasons. 

The firm originally started in 1979 with one employee and business was conducted on a person-to-person client/accountant relationship. A lot has changed but that ideal is still alive today. John Pieters began his accounting career with a major international accounting firm and saw firsthand what happens when an organization gets so large that personalized client relationships are lost.

The staff operates as a team providing prompt, decisive, and qualified professional services, yet still takes pride in maintaining a close, one-on-one relationship with each client. The staff continues to promote the original values of hard work, integrity and community involvement.

Who We Serve

We provide service to a wide variety of industries, businesses, individuals, and public entities.

We work in partnership with our clients and their other legal and financial advisors. This permits us to provide services that are uniquely tailored to an individual’s specific personal or business needs.

Our financial and estate planning consultation has helped clients increase their net worth and minimize estate taxes.

We have developed special expertise in working closely with local professional service organizations in solving their business problems. Medical practices, both individual practitioners and medical groups, are among our specialties.

Another area of substantial involvement has been in the real estate industry. Clients include land developers, general contractors, sub-contractors, and real estate agents.

We believe open communication is vital to a good client-professional relationship. Our clients find us to be good listeners — responsive to their needs and capable of meeting them.
