Our Client Testimonials

What our clients say about us

As a multi-generational, family-owned business, we strive to give clients the attention and results they deserve. But don’t just take our word for it.

  • “When faced with a sales tax audit, Anthony Joseph Pope represented my company before the Illinois Department of Revenue and greatly reduced our tax liability and penalties. Without their help, we probably would have had to close our doors.”

  • “When my company’s sales were drastically impacted during the coronavirus pandemic, AJPope helped us obtain Payroll Protection Program and Economic Injury Disaster Loan funds. Without that financial assistance, I am not sure how we would have been able to continue paying our employees or even staying open for business.”
