PCAOB Registered

After 65 years in business, Berman Hopkins has effectively navigated itself to be one of the largest and most effective independently run CPA and consulting firms in Central Florida. Their vision is to differentiate their practice as an independent regional firm that provides exceptional careers to a team of experts focused on servicing dynamic clients. This philosophy has resonated not only with their clients and accelerated strategic growth, but it has supported an ongoing effort to retain incredible talent within their firm.

The exceptional reputation that they have earned in their community is a result of their hard work and commitment to providing a quality service. They accept clients only in the areas where they are proficient, and they recognize they are not "everyone’s" CPA firm. This mentality has been a critical change in their business model, as it has enabled their partners and staff to focus on being more than just a compliance-oriented firm, and they are now among the Top 50 Construction Accounting Firms by Construction Executive, as well as being the highest-ranked firm in Florida and #36 in the nation.

At Berman Hopkins, they consider their employees as family, and they appreciate the hard work and dedication their employees invest in their firm. This culture allows them to have the autonomy necessary to execute swift decisions at a local level, while harnessing the resources of a national firm through their membership of PrimeGlobal.

As a “NON-book-of-business” firm, Berman Hopkins continually match their best people and appropriate skill sets with the right tasks in an unencumbered fashion. Clients receive the best Berman Hopkins has to offer, and they will take exceptional care to maintain continuity of personnel. Coordination and communication remain cornerstones of their service delivery model.

Berman Hopkins has been named one of INSIDE Public Accounting's 2021 Best of the Best Firms. Ranked on more than 50 metrics, Berman Hopkins appreciates this recognition as a leading performer within the public accounting profession - producing superior results while planning for long-term sustainability and growth, offering both clients and staff alike a successful future.
