About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Our clients tell us that having a financial "pro" on their small business team who helps them understand their business, understand their numbers, and always has suggestions, tips, and ideas for helping their bottom line makes us different than anything they have ever had. A common refrain we hear is "I wish I'd known about you guys sooner!"

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

There is nothing we enjoy more than getting to be a part of a business that is developing and growing. Just watching a hard working, passionate business owner succeed is, put simply, inspiring.

    Best bookkeeping service out there!!!
    My experience with PL Consulting has been fantastic. My only regret is not working with them sooner. You will not find a more knowledgeable and dedicated group of professionals.

    Mr. Hammelburger is a consummate professional and knows the ins and outs of bookkeeping like the back of his hand. I would strongly recommending his and his company's services when you are in need of a solid tracking system for your business.

    We have been using PL Consulting for the past year to help clean up our QB desktop and to convert to QBO. Michael was our go-to person for the clean up. He was very thorough and took the time to explain the process of the conversion. He was also available throughout to answer my questions as I learned the nuances of QBO. Would highly recommend this firm.
