We strive to create a service experience that is so exceptional it organically creates loyalty.”
Michael started working at Belfint Lyons & Shuman, P.A. immediately upon graduating from the University of Delaware and quickly passed all parts of the CPA exam. As a supervisor in the Audit Department, Michael’s strength is his command of technology and strategic use of data-extraction software to isolate errors and recognize internal control deficiencies. He utilizes his strong analytical skills and attention to detail to focus on the specialty practice areas of internal controls and forensic accounting.
Throughout the year, Michael works with a diverse group of clients including Taft-Hartley employee benefit plans, nonprofit organizations, construction companies, governmental entities, and various agreed-upon procedure engagements. The agreed-upon procedure engagements he specifically works with include payroll audits of companies that are signatory to collective bargaining agreements.
