About Hertzbach & Company, P.A.


How We Started

In 1948, George Hertzbach had a vision of starting an independent, full-service accounting firm dedicated to local, hard-working businesses. Since those humble beginnings, his vision has grown into a firm of over 180 professionals, diverse in their experience and achievements, concentrating in multiple practice areas throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

Hertzbach has never lost sight of what our founder deemed important; that all clients, without exception, have the right to the highest level of expertise and advice, a thorough understanding of their financial position and a commitment by those engaged and entrusted to guide them to business success.

The depth of our expertise and our excellent reputation makes us the preferred choice for businesses and individuals when selecting a CPA and business consulting firm for growth and prosperity.

This client-focused philosophy, set forth by George Hertzbach, today enables us to retain our significant, long-term client relationships.
