If you are traveling south of Lakeland on Florida Avenue, you may not notice the offices of Parrish & Parrish CPA’s, P.A. But back from the busy road, on the shores of beautiful Lake Clark, is where professional accounting practices meet up with individualized services.

Parrish & Parrish is where Duke Parrish, CPA, Wade Parrish, CPA, and their capable staff work to, as their motto says, “make sure your numbers add up.” With more than 50 years of public accounting experience in the Lakeland area, Parrish & Parrish provides clients a unique and unmatched service in the accounting market place.

Duke Parrish has been in the accounting field in Lakeland since 1970. His expertise also involves working with state and local attorneys to provide detailed analysis and valuations on land, eminent domain issues, as well as estate and divorce litigation. Wade Parrish has practiced public accounting in Central Florida since 1996, providing high quality, proactive and personalized service to a wide variety of clients ranging from individuals to small and mid-size companies in various industries. The staff and partners of Parrish & Parrish have continuing education on QuickBooks and the staff has earned QuickBook Proadvisor certification in every area that QuickBooks offers.

Through their active volunteerism and financial support of their churches and other nonprofit entities, the partners and staff serve the Lakeland community. In recent years, the Parrish family has had a family member endure the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease. From this experience, the firm has responded with fundraising efforts to help those with this dreaded disease through their support of the Alzheimer’s Association.
