We were referred to Mr. Dougherty by a large business owner and were pleased to find that he also manages personal accounts. We found Mr. Dougherty to be very personable and his service and that of his office is outstanding. We have greatly benefited from his thoroughness, timeliness and attention to detail in complex tax issues. Through Mr. Dougherty’s depth of knowledge, we greatly benefited from tax advantages we otherwise would not have known. For these important reasons, we have continued with his services while living in other states across the country over the past seven years.
My family and I have used Dougherty & Connell for five years to help prepare my income tax returns and for other tax-related advice. Kevin Dougherty’s knowledge of federal and state tax laws and regulations is unsurpassed, and he has been extremely helpful in allowing us to make wise tax-related decisions. Moreover, he does an outstanding job to make himself available, and always takes the time to answer questions and explain the underlying tax principles. I recommend Kevin and his firm without reservation. They are truly excellent at what they do.
Dougherty & Connell are very capable and responsive consultants. They are versatile – they can do a solid audit as well as prepare a complex tax return and typically meet their budgets and timelines. They provide insight when required and always listen to the client’s concerns and views. I recommend them for large and small engagements whenever the opportunity arises. Their fees are reasonable and you get a very personal touch.
We have been clients both personal and business for over 20 years. The number one quality we look for in an accountant and accounting firm is integrity. We are conservative by nature and do not want to find we are paying more than we should, but by the same token we are not interested in seeing how close we can come to the line that should not be crossed. Kevin Dougherty and his associates have provided excellent service and advice. We could not be more pleased and would encourage anyone reading this testimonial to talk with them about your needs.

Dougherty & Connell CPA’s have been a great resource for my business for nearly 10 years. They have helped me navigate financial statements, tax statements, as well as tax and business planning. I have worked closely with Bob Connell to successfully sell my business and to navigate through the process with whatever help and input was needed.
Bob never cuts corners, and always takes the time to make sure things are done properly. He provides practical insight and recommendations in navigating the challenges of managing a business in today’s complex world of finance and accounting.
I am a long-practicing New York City attorney and, in that capacity as well as personally, Kevin Dougherty has long well served to advise, guide, preserve and protect my tax and financial interests. Apart from his high level of professional competence, his demeanor has always been exemplary: attentive, prompt, courteous and caring. In short, an ideal professional advisor. And his fees have always been within my budget.
I am writing this letter of personal reference for Mr. Robert E. Connell, CPA. I have employed his services for over fifteen years and have found not only his credentials to be excellent but extremely professional. Mr. Connell is honest, hard working, conscientious, and reliable.
Being a business man with limited knowledge of the complications of accounting practices, Mr. Connell has proven himself to be patient and an educator of what my business requirements and planning strategy should be in order for me to maintain a profitable and growing business.
Over the years not only did our professional relationship develop but he also became more of a personal confidante where our conversations evolved into brainstorming discussions where he has assisted my business to evolve into a thriving success.
I trust that the information provided will be of assistance in your selection process of interviewing competent accounting firms.
