About Cleveland Accounting Firm Pease & Associates

Joe Pease founded Pease & Associates on a simple yet effective premise: focus the practice on tax, accounting, and business consulting services, with nothing but the best possible delivery system.

As an entrepreneur himself in the Certified Public Accounting industry, Joe has experienced many of the same tax and accounting issues as his clients. Understanding what a client needs now as well as down the road, a focus on core CPA service excellence and passion for happy clients are the foundation on which the accounting firm was built.

In 1999, Joe assembled a select group of accounting experts to join him in this new venture, with a goal of becoming one of the best local accounting firms in the area.  Pease & Associates quickly established a reputation for its passionate commitment to clients and a keen understanding in the areas of tax, accounting, and business consulting.

Today, our accounting the firm has more than 50 employees who pride themselves on proactively serving their clients. Together they lend their expertise to many companies in a variety of industries, including construction, real estate, distribution, manufacturing, healthcare, and not-for-profit industries.

Many of the partners and staff have been with Pease & Associates since 1999, and we pride ourselves on the fact that as opposed to many accounting firms, ours enjoys a low turnover rate. This means that our associates become intimately familiar with each client. In turn, our clients appreciate that the Pease team that greets them the first time they walk in the door will be the same team to handle their accounting needs for years to come.
