SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Mayor Al Smith and members of the Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce cut the ribbon to officially open the new office of Michael Lamela, CPA, at 210 Haven Ave. in Scotch Plains.

"If you are looking for a blend of personal service and expertise, you have come to the right place," says Lamela. "With today's complex tax laws, I strive to provide every client with the assistance they need to effectively navigate and minimize their tax obligations."

As he was completing his undergraduate degree at Saint Peter's College in Jersey City, Lamela never imagined that he would someday pursue a career in accounting.

"I had always been good with math and numbers, but the thought of a career in accounting just seemed boring to me," says Lamela, who attended St. Peter's at night to complete his Masters in Accountancy.

During his senior year at St. Peter's, he took a part time job at a small CPA firm helping out during tax season and gained a new appreciation for accounting. Upon graduating, he was offered a full time position as a staff accountant. A few years later, he became licensed as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in New Jersey.

"Every person and every business has tax filing obligations, which presents endless opportunities to help people," Lamela adds.

Michael Lamela CPA,
