Mitchell York
Owner, Better Way Coaching


"I am the owner of Yottabyte Craft Chocolate and Candy Store in Smithtown NY. There are a lot of things intimidating about starting a corporation and a new business. There are so many intricacies that would have taken me at least a year to begin to even grasp. I can't thank Michael Hanley and his team enough for setting up my corporation and being our accountant. He is always there to answer any of questions. Michael also set us up on QuickBooks and handles my personal, corporate and sales tax. If you are apprehensive about starting a business or becoming a corporation, I suggest you contact Michael. His office continues to be our best support in starting our new business!"

The firm, with Mr. Hanley at the helm, is professional, responsive, and just a pleasure to work with. In particular, Mike Hanley has the ability to put the client's mind at ease because he has it under control. I don't want to have to know all the ins and outs of business taxes, and capital gains. That's what Mike is for. And, he does it brilliantly."

MJ Goff
Owner, MJ Writes

"The decision to switch to Michels & Hanley was incredibly nerve racking since I had worked closely with the same accountant for the last 8 years. Mike did an amazing job with the transition. His office always had answers right away and was extremely knowledgeable in what was needed to continue the success of the business. If for any reason I did not fully understand an explantion given to me, Mike would take the time to make sure I understood before the end of a conversation. I highly recommend Mike to any small business owner."
