About Wampler & Associates LLC

Wampler & Associates, LLC was founded in 1995 when Eric Wampler started the business as a sole proprietor.  Initially, Eric started the business to provide quality tax and accounting services to friends and family.  As word of mouth began to spread, Eric operated the business part-time venture and focused on individual and corporate tax returns, business consulting and general accounting / bookkeeping services for small businesses.  The business continued to thrive and grow over the years into a full-time venture for Eric, and it has now grown into the firm of Wampler & Associates, LLC.

Client Comments / Quotes:

Each of the following quotes were posted to Eric’s LinkedIn profile by his clients:

“Eric is a detail oriented accountant who doesn’t lose sight of the big picture. If something is not possible or plausible, Eric doesn’t tell me “no” or why something “can’t” be done, but rather he tries to get to focus on my ultimate goals and how to achieve the best and closest results possible. Eric has a unique mix of both public accounting and corporate finance/accounting experience that allows him to see both sides of the equation and help make sure the numbers aren’t only right but that the information that I receive as a business owner is information that empowers me to make better business decisions. I value Eric’s expertise in both my business and personal accounting and financial matters.”


“I have known Eric as an expert financial and accounting professional for several years prior to selecting him to do all of my personal and business accounting work. Eric has been doing all of the tax reporting for my family including out of state estate as well as charitable foundation filings. Over the years I have recommended Eric to others and have had nothing but glowing results. I seek his expert opinion whenever it comes to financial decisions. To the point that I have my investment advisor talk directly with Eric at times.”
