About Sturhahn Breazeale & Co, PC

Jerry Sturhahn purchased a small, established accounting practice upon moving to Springfield in 1981 and grew the clientele. Terry Breazeale, a Springfield native, joined in 1989 after stints with larger firms. He found the attention to personalized service of small businesses much to his liking. Terry has been the sole owner for 12 years and is celebrating his 25th year as a CPA.

We combine our expertise and years of experience with a fee structure that most small businesses can afford. As a small firm, we don’t take on the substantial overhead costs larger firms sometimes do. We forgo that high-visibility, luxurious office space that some CPAs indulge in. Consequently, we don’t have to build those higher costs into our rates, and our fees can stay competitive.
