What Our Clients Say About Us

Call Us Today: 302-239-3500

We came to Doherty & Associates after having had a bad experience with another accountant. They were so patient with us, and talked us through every step. Everyone we encountered was professional, kind, and thorough.

We have used this tax service for both personal and business needs. We have always been greatly satisfied. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for professional tax assistance.

Kind quick and courteous tax prep

We had our first tax preparation meeting with Debbie last week. She was very helpful and knew all of the right questions to ask. They were easy to get even a last minute appointment with. The office is very nice and clean. The office staff were pleasant to work with. I look forward to see how our taxes turn out.

I’ve been using this firm for several years and I’ve never had a problem. They handle all of my tax filing electronically.
They’re very patient with me when I’m missing documentation. 🙂
They tell me the price up front and I’ve never had it go over what I was quoted.

I retained D&A to handle my non-profits financial records and this year I will surely do my taxes with them. They are one of the best firms I have came across, works with me on things I don’t quite understand. I don’t feel as if my financial needs are being rushed. I trust this firm and I know that my accounts are in great hands. If you are looking for a firm D&A is a place to consider.

I love the work that I got it was the best Doherty & Associates get u in and out I will go back again.

Doherty & Associates has handled our personal and business accounts for years, they are very knowledgeable and responsive. We have had nothing but great experiences and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for accounting services.

I would like to thank Doherty & Associates for doing a wonderful job on my taxes. They presented themselves as profressionals and took their time explaining and answering any questions i had. I would definitely refer their services to all my friends.

Many thanks for the great customer service. I called for some information and got more than expected. I was able to speak with Debria the owner. What a nice lady, she knows her stuff! They will surely be my firm. Thanks for the help

I use them for personal and business taxes. They always have 100% of my confidence in doing a great job. They have helped grow my business over the years by providing the best tax strategies. Very easy to get a hold of anytime I have a tax question. I highly recommend using them.

We are sincerely grateful for being a client of Doherty & Associates.  The professional manner exhibited by your staff in the preparation of our tax work is truly appreciated. It was easy to recommend Doherty & Associates to our friends and a relief to know that they were put in good hands.

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Doherty & Associates.  You could have simply used what we gave you, filed the taxes, and continued to collect your money.  However, you truly empathized with my family and went above and beyond to save us money.  For that, I owe Doherty & Associates a wealth of gratitude.

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you kindly for doing my taxes on such short notice.  The professionalism at Doherty & Associates blew me away and left me speechless. Once again, thank you for your kindness and making my day!

I just wanted to drop Doherty & Associates a note to say “Thank You” for all of the hard work due to all that has been thrown at you lately.  We really appreciate everything that you are doing! 

I just wanted to let Debbie know how much we appreciated her help with our taxes last year.  My  husband’s taxes were, unfortunately, in bad shape for the last few years- it seems that Turbotax and H&R Block just doesn’t seem to cut it.  We received a total tax refund of over $20,000 because of Deb’s knowledge.  Thank you Debbie!  Incredible!

I want to give some kudos to the team members of Doherty and Associates. They were very responsive to my needs and quickly guided me to a desirable conclusion. Many thanks to them for a job well done.

Dear Debbie,

I just want to write a few items, to let you know my appreciation for your association, and the ongoing support that you have given to me, and my fledgling company. I must start by letting you know, I first went to a different Accounting Firm, thinking that they would be able to help me start up my company. I was very surprised to find they barely had the time to even talk to my wife, and I. The experience was not a warm feeling going home that day I reached home and found a introduction letter from your firm. To my surprise when I called I actually talked directly to you, and that was the start of a great business relationship. I really have appreciated how you have taken a personal interest in my small business and given me the proper direction to make a proactive step forward. I also appreciate the way you have assigned an individual to my company to watch over my accounts. The last couple of months have been very rewarding, and I must attribute this directly to your personalized type of accounting service. The best to you, and your firm, for a great service to the community.

Element Design Group switched to Doherty & Associates for payroll services after the start of fiscal year 2009 and the transition was very smooth. Their staff worked closely to reconcile our previous accounts and they provided a great level of customer service when the transition posed some challenges. Element has benefited from the change to Doherty and we look forward to the opportunity to utilize some of their complimentary services in the future.

Doherty and Associates are always ready to serve our bookkeeping and accounting needs. Their staff is prompt, courteous, and very knowledgeable. They are always ready to go the extra mile to solve problems, and with today’s economic conditions, their expertise is very much appreciated.

Doherty & Associates have been the accounting suppport for our business since 2006 when I realized we had grown beyond what I could do with Quick Books. The company was working in multiple states and the taxes were quite complicated. Never having used an accounting firm before, Debbie Doherty worked closely with us to correct errors and establish good accounting practices. Through Doherty & Associates, we were networked with other necessary business professionals including health care providers, insurance agents and personal as well as business financial advisors. With Doherty & Associates help we were able to grow our business.

Doherty & Associates is an integral part of my business family. As a small business owner I don’t have a lot of time to spend on accounting, financial planning and business expansion. Doherty & Associates goes above and beyond what I expected a company should provide.

We started working with Doherty & Associates about 5 years ago when we had many accounting issues.  Our accountant at that time never filed our taxes on time and year after year placed us on extension. I was referred to Doherty & Associates through a friend and when I met with Debbie I immediately felt very comfortable and at ease.  She was able to resolve the IRS issues and reconciled all our accounting and bookkeeping issues. Today Doherty & Associates continues to handle our payroll, bookkeeping and tax needs with no IRS issues.  By me making that call to Debbie I truly believe I saved my company and am able to operate it properly today.  I highly recommend Doherty & Associates to anyone that wants a dedicated, loyal and efficient accounting firm.

Doherty & Associates is a great company!  They keep track of my cash flow, handle all my billing, pay by bills, file my taxes and makes sure I do not get into trouble with the IRS.  Debbie and her staff is always available to help me with any question I may have.  I really value their services and would not be able to run my business with out their dedication.

Deb, Have a great holiday, we really appreciate how hard you and your group work for our organization.

Thank you for the great service, advice, and hard work.

As a small business owner, we turn to Doherty & Associates for all our accounting, business consulting and tax service. The personalized service we receive from the company has helped us grow our business over the years. I would recommend Doherty & Associates because you get personalized service and a fee that fits your budget. We would recommend them highly for any company that is interested in retaining more profit, reducing taxes and growing their business.

I met Deb Doherty and her team through Delaware Real Estate Investors Association, DELREIA, meeting in 2013.  The message they gave that evening made me realize that I’m so clueless on the tax side of real estate, protecting my family and business and the potential of what I was doing in my private life that I made an appointment right away.  Since then, they have guided me to making sure that I am aware of tax issues, guided me in making smarter decisions, to make sure that I keep the team in the loop with everything I’m doing in the real estate arena and whether or not I’m protected as I grow.  I would recommend the services of Doherty and Associates to anyone looking for a team to assist them as they grow their business, to personally return your calls or emails, and address any concerns you may have, most times the same day!  I really appreciate their continued education through DELREIA and classes they provide.


It has been over a year since I started working with Doherty & Associates, and it is great knowing that you are on my team.  You and your staff have been accommodating, careful, and appear to handle all things, big and little, with the same energy.  I appreciate your experienced tax and business advice, and your participation in strategic decision making.

I’m not surprised at all to see your awards for the past two years.  Congratulations and thank you!

I have been a long time client of Doherty and Associates so it is hard to say in a few words how they have impacted our business. Doherty and Associates are the best. They are professional all the way way. Debbie Doherty is a very professional and kind person. She is on top of her game and knows what she is talking about. When you call their office you always get someone who is very helpful and knowledgeable. Debbie is always available to help you out also I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my accounting services.

Debbie it the ultimate professional and I would highly recommend her company. Her knowledge and contacts have been indispensable.

“D&A is becoming true “partner” in our business.  Deb and her staff work tirelessly and make you feel as if you are their only client.  Instead of seeming like we are always working in the past, now we are looking forward to the future since we have found D&A.”

Thank you for everything you and your colleagues do every day.  Including sending an e-mail at 11 o’clock at night during the height of tax season.

I wanted to thank Debbie and her team for helping to get my husband and I back on the Right Track!  My husband and I had neglected to file our taxes for the past five years.  Debbie and her team were able to file our back taxes and work out an installment agreement with the IRS to pay off our past due balance.  Debbie was able to explain each step of the process to make sure that we understood exactly what was going on in our situation.  Debbie’s knowledge helped us to get back on the right track and for that we are grateful!


Thanks a lot! You always have solutions for everything. So glad with your services and support!

Thank you!
Best regards

Debbie is the most skilled and patient accountant with whom I’ve had the pleasure to work with, and she (along with her team) is great at working with physicians like us. Debbie’s has guided me through the process of what it is to deal with paying “real taxes” since I was a doing my fellowship. She is very diligent, responsible, thorough, listens to your concerns and provides solid advise.

Knowing Debbie personally, and totally trust. And after all if you need an account for your business shouldn’t that be someone you can trust.

As both CFO of a multinational company and personally speaking, I can attest that Doherty & Associates are the best option for accounting in Delaware. It’s as simple as that.

Debbie is a fantastic and caring accountant. She follows up and makes sure that all appropriate forms are always taken care of. I very much recommend her!

For years I had done my own taxes with one of the online solutions, in 2019 I had Doherty & Associates complète my taxes and they did an amazing job. Saved me quite a bit more money than if I had done them myself AND it really is sooo much less stressful to have someone you trust doing your taxes for you. I highly recommend their services for both business and personal taxes.

Debbie Doherty and her team have been very professional in assisting me with my tax needs. They honestly take a burden off my shoulders in getting my taxes done. I highly recommend her and her firm!
