I have never used this company and after what I experienced today I never will, nor will I recommend this company to anyone. I was standing in line at another local business and there was a lady that was in front of me. She said she was the owner of Goodlander Swett & Rybicki, she was the rudest, completely unfriendly, and unbelievably obnoxious person I have ever witnessed. The person working at the business did an awesome job keeping her cool....I would not have been able to. Just because you are having a bad day doesn't give you the right to be rude to people who are just doing their jobs.

I did use these people. They acted like they were helping me save my business and they wound up screwing me out of it. Stay away.

When I say screwed me out of it I mean they own it now and I don't. Leeches!

I have used this Company for over 20yrs..Started when they were on the corner of 4mile/Plainfield...Over this time period they have helped start companies and guided me along..

Nothing but praise here and hope they continue with their customer friendly business;

Sorry about Jeremy and Lawsuit having bad experience however hard for me to believe. Some might refer back to the saying "Junk in...Junk out"

Goodlander, Swett & Rybicki, CPAs have done so much for my business. Mike in particular has saved me so much money with the tax structure he came up with. He is truly one of the nicest men I have ever met in my life!

Wow - Jeremy it is hard to believe that you do not know this woman as you hit the nail on the head. She is EXACTLY as you describe. I have met her only once personally but have had to deal with her professionally via email and phone several times as "her" company handles our office's taxes, accounting, etc. As a matter of fact, we just recently "fired" them. Mike (the husband) is wishy washy and a door mat. She is just plain old unprofessional, rude, and demeaning. Firing them is the best decision our office made in the past few weeks. Accounting wise - we never had any complaints but then again she was not persoanlly doing our accounting it was a staff accountant. But we will not do business with someone that rude and unprofessional. Not where there are many more accounting firms out there that are just great and pleasant to work with.

I personally have worked closely with this firm and they are very hard workers. They care for their clients and their clients love and trust them. Too bad that I am seeing a couple bad experiences, but that is NOT the case for all! I have mentioned their name to new businesses looking for a CPA, and the response was, "oh, I've heard good things about them" I will totally give them a call! I have also watched their business grow, earning clients in even different states. That doesn't happen just by luck!#justsayin
