Our Commitment to Your Data Security

We take our role as your tax professional and trusted advisor seriously. Because we are entrusted with your confidential information, we are taking further steps to implement security measures to ensure your personally identifiable data is more secure than ever.

Over the next few months, you may see some changes to the way our firm does business and handles your private information. Some changes will happen behind the scenes, and some may impact our day-to-day client interactions. Some of the impacts you may see are—

  • further identification challenges, in the form of identity verification for digital signature;
  • required use of stronger or complex passwords on emailed documents;
  • required encrypted portal use rather than direct email of digital documents;
  • two-factor authentication procedures;
  • stronger spam filters and firewalls on our email communications; and
  • follow-up phone calls from staff when unexpected communications are received.

Please note that these cybersecurity steps are not taken lightly. We understand that there may be some inconvenience on both your and our side of the transaction. Your digital security and safety are a large part of our duty as your advisor and we want to be diligent in our service.

You can help protect your financial and other personally identifiable information by taking the following steps:

  1. Secure your devices with antivirus software and keep it up to date.
  2. Use different passwords for different accounts.
  3. Do not use public WiFi for personal banking or other sensitive business.
  4. Never open attachments you were not expecting; call and confirm with the sender.
  5. Never share your personal information with unsecure websites.
  6. Only download and install information from known and trusted websites.

We look forward to our continued relationship. If you have any questions, please contact our office.

During this Christmas season, probably several times, Cathy Stegemann will sit down at the piano at Mesilla Valley Hospice, and play “O Holy Night.” Just a few years ago, Stegemann didn’t even play the piano.

“When my husband died, more than four years ago, I just sat down and started playing,” Stegemann said. She’s never had a lesson, and one day she was by a piano, and a piece of paper fell on the floor. She turned it over and saw the musical notes.

“I thought, ‘I can play this.’” And she did.

Her husband, Ivan, had been a patient at Mesilla Valley Hospice and, after a grieving time, Stegemann began volunteering there, and developing her piano skills, much to the delight of staff and residents.

Our partner Brad Beasley loved presenting at the Southern New Mexico Estate Planning Council's luncheon this month.

The topic of the workshop was Business Succession Planning.


We had a great time supporting the 2018 edition of the Dress the Child Charity event. This organization helps raise funds to clothe children in need in our community and we are more than proud to support them.
