About Brown Edwards
A Business Advisor Dedicated to You.
Accounting, Assurance, Tax, and Management Advisory Services
Brown Edwards is a full-service professional services firm dedicated to helping your business grow and prosper!
With more than 450 professionals across a dozen locations in the Mid-Atlantic, we are one of the largest independent CPA firms in the region, combining the resources offered by a larger firm with the personalized client care you expect from a smaller, local one.
Brown Edwards was formed in 1967 through the merger of two firms with histories dating back to the 1920s. Since then, we’ve steadily expanded our physical presence throughout the Mid-Atlantic acquiring offices in Virginia, West Virginia, and Tennessee. But today, thanks to our use of technology, we’re advising businesses across the country.
Our firm has been an advisor to companies in a wide array of industries including, education, construction, banking, non-profits, and state and local governments, just to name a few. During the last 55 years, we have gained in-depth knowledge in these industries. Many of our team members hold additional designations beyond being Certified Public Accountants (CPA), such as Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), Certified Valuation Professional (CVP), Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager (CRCM), and Certified Financial Planner (CFP).
Brown Edwards has helped thousands of companies with financial management, tax preparation, and strategic planning. Our work with these businesses has allowed us to build technical skills, professional networks, and in-depth knowledge in specific industries.
