When it comes to your business and personal finances, we don’t just check boxes. We show you how to think outside of them. Our dedicated client relationship managers work with our robust team of technical accounting and tax experts to offer proactive consulting that empowers you to plan for the future. We take the time to understand your full financial picture and offer a wide range of accounting and advisory services to help you take the next step toward financial your business and in your life.


We care.

You are more than a number or a transaction to us. We take the time to get to know you, whether you’re a client, a team member or a business associate.

We’re energized.

When you work with a MiddletonRaines+Zapata team member, you’ll feel the sense of urgency. Our people enjoy what they do, and as a result they are driven and focused on results. That internal drive fuels the growth of our clients and the team members who serve them.

We’re accessible.

Our client service model centers on top management involvement each step of the way. We also believe in communicating face-to-face whenever possible, so our clients get used to seeing their engagement partner in their office on a regular basis.

We get results.

We are obsessed with solving our clients’ problems. Whatever your question, we will find the answer. No excuses.

We hear you.

Your concerns are our concerns. We strive for the highest quality in everything we do, and that means we listen more than we talk.

We’re innovative.

We don’t do things the same way we did them last year. We live for those “aha!” moments when we see an opportunity to deliver a better solution. When it comes to tax and consulting work, we strive to give multiple options, each with a different level of risk and reward.

We collaborate.

We believe that by working together, our audit and tax professionals will deliver a solution that more effectively and efficiently solves the underlying problem.

We believe CPA is synonymous with integrity.

We hold one another, and our clients, accountable for the exceptional quality and integrity that is expected of our profession.
