"My former law firm and my current law firm have used the services of DeKraker & Winkler, CPA, PC, for approximately 10 years. The work product is thorough and accurate, and Jean takes the initiative in raising issues that can produce a better result and in making suggestions for future years. Clients who I have referred to Jean report to me that they find her firm to be highly professional. Most of these clients are individuals, trustees of estate planning trusts, and small businesses. Jean uses a team approach, involving the client, my law firm, her CPA firm, and any other individuals or firms involved in a project or issue. My family and I also use Jean and her firm for our personal tax filings, which have included some multi-state filings. Jean and her firm have asked me questions that have saved me from paying more taxes than necessary. They have answered all of my questions in a timely manner—sometimes even on weekends by e-mail!"

"Jean and her staff have been nothing short of AMAZING! In a world where customer service is dead it is alive and well in Jean DeKraker's office. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Answers are given promptly. The information and rationale used on our return was fantastic. Looking forward to many more years of great service and strategies from Jean and Robin!!"

"Jean DeKraker's name was going around a small women's group I was a part of as a great CPA for women in small businesses in 2000. I made an appointment and was impressed with her creativity, knowledge and friendly professionalism. Shortly after we got started Jean introduced me to Robin Winkler, CPA and we have been working as a team ever since. As my business has morphed into several different opportunities and the market has been on a roller coaster I have felt I have received excellent advice and direction. Now as I prepare for retirement I am comforted that I have such professionals to guide me."

"This letter is in reference to DeKraker & Winkler, CPA. I worked with Ms. DeKraker in defending a Personal Representative of an Estate. Based upon the allegations against my client, it was necessary to reconstruct approximately seventeen (17) years of records to show that one of the heirs had received all of her distributions from the Estate.
Although a great number of the records were lost, Ms. DeKraker was able to reconstruct the Estate to show that my client had properly made all distributions. Throughout the three day trial, Ms. DeKraker’s expertise was critical in defending the Estate.
I was extremely impressed with Ms. DeKraker’s dedication to understanding the records and familiarizing herself with the Estate’s financial, tax and real property matters. Without Ms. DeKraker’s preparation and expertise, I am sure that the outcome would not have been as favorable to my client.
