I had the privilege of working closely with J.R. for over two years.  Together we provided finance and accounting support to VoiceBase, one of our mutual clients, a VC-backed technology company.  He managed all accounting and tax matters.  During this period, we were able to substantially upgrade the accuracy, usefulness and timeliness of the financial information.  We closed three rounds of financing and we were able to present financial information to prospective investors with confidence.  J.R. was a pleasure to work with and he knew when to involve me in decisions and when to resolve matters without me.  I look forward to working with J.R. in the future and I highly recommend him.

As a startup, we needed someone with not just accounting experience but also the financial expertise that is able to help guide us through the rapid pace of change that happens to a rapidly growing business. J.R. was not only able to help us getting our projections together in record time, he also stayed on top of every email, text and phone call with the level of responsiveness that you would only expect from someone who truly cares about his clients and is passionate about helping those who are just starting out.

I would highly recommend J.R.’s service to anyone who needs it, but more importantly, I look forward to continuing to work with J.R. as our company grows in the future.

J.R. is superb!  J.R. and his team are professional, reliable, and fun to work with.  For a couple of years while our accounting team was focused on infrastructure and scalability projects, we relied on J.R. and his staff to help ensure our day to day operations ran smoothly.  With his proficiency in Quickbooks and on-site services, J.R. ensured that our vendors were happy and bank accounts in order.  His fluency in Spanish also came in handy for managing our partners in Latin America.  J.R. came to me as a recommendation, and what a remarkable recommendation it was!

J.R. has been a dependable source for my growing business since our pre-investment days. I can count on him to make suggestions to improve our bookkeeping practices over time. I recommend him to any small business in need of accounting services.

It’s a big step to move from one accounting software program to another. J.R. helped me move forward quickly and cost effectively both short and long term, and provided rich feedback.  J.R. is and continues to be a reputable resource in the accounting field.

We are proud to announce that J.R. Patterson was recently made part of the core management team of Regen Villages, a start-up based out of Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business HSTAR unit.



One of my clients had urgent accounting systems analysis needs during one of the busiest times of the year – tax season.  I asked J.R. if he could help, and he jumped right in! Both the client and I were very happy with J.R.’s work and timeliness.  J.R. is very professional and a complete pleasure to work with.  I highly recommend J.R.’s services.

This is my second time with J.R.  In my most recent experience, J.R. proved invaluable once again.  My prior CFO had given me incorrect information which caused me to make a lot of incorrect business decisions.  I called J.R. who I had worked with seven years earlier and asked for his help figuring out where my business was financially.  After giving me a true picture of my company’s financial condition, I replaced my CFO with J.R. and asked him to help get my company’s finances back in shape.

I always tell J.R. that I have peace of mind for the first time in years because now I know where my business is financially.  I can call him up anytime with questions about accounting and business and he always takes my call. I can just talk business with J.R., not only accounting.

I have been starting and building successful businesses since 1985, including my most recent web-based manufacturing business.  I understand business and the importance of the accounting component.  Simply put, JR is the best accountant I have ever had.  His organizational skills are outstanding.  But what I admire most about JR is his character, integrity, and principles.
