About My Accounting Office LLC

Proudly Serving the Greater Rochester NY Area & Boca Raton, FL

During the course of running a private accounting firm, LPWolch, CPAs, P.C., we found we were helping our clients and their family members organize their financial matters. In some cases, clients were faced with helping elderly loved ones or were too busy to effectively manage their finances. Other times, clients were living with a disability and needed assistance with bill paying and budgeting.

As we began helping more clients and their families, it became apparent there was a bigger need for assistance of this nature. We lead more complicated, fast paced lives than ever before, and the elderly population is living longer. This often leaves family members challenged with assisting their loved ones, while trying to maintain their own financial health.

Our firm serves clients in Rochester, NY and Boca Raton, FL. From bookkeeping and budgeting to personal shopping and working with creditors, we work intimately with the client and/or their family members to ensure responsibilities are carefully delegated. There is no “standard” set of services with our firm. We take the time to determine how we can help our clients enjoy what matters most to them, without the burden of daily financial responsibilities.

We work to be an advocate for every client, and use our experience to help them achieve a “Peace of Mind”.
