  • JHM Certified Public Accountants



Since its founding in 1977, JHM Certified Public Accountants has grown into one of the most highly respected Chattanooga accounting firms and Chattanooga business advisors. Our enduring relationships with clients, team members and the community are key to our shared success.


JHM’s longstanding relationships with reputable clients in the community are what set us apart.

Because every client is an important part of our accounting family, we have built a reputation for being proactive and responsive to their needs. More than “just an auditor,” we often become a trusted advisor in evaluating big decisions. In addition to the firm’s wide range of industry expertise, our clients enjoy value-added services such as computer support, technical assistance on accounting and tax matters, and informal feedback on just about any related subject.

 This high level of service is only possible through our “firm concept,” in which each client is served by the whole firm, not just one individual. All 35 team members are empowered by this team spirit. 



JHM’s people-centered culture allows our firm to attract and retain some of the brightest, most forward-thinking accounting professionals in the market today.

Because we value each team member, our firm enjoys very low turnover--something our clients appreciate immensely. Our team members never want to choose between work and home life, so we strive to provide balance. We offer competitive salaries, flexible work arrangements and continuing education opportunities.

We also stay on the leading edge of technology, allowing our team members to work efficiently and effectively from anywhere – whether from home or at a client’s office. Our goal is to help our team members reach their goals and develop rewarding accounting and business consulting careers.



JHM’s far-reaching involvement with Chattanooga nonprofits allows us to give back to the community we love.

We support and encourage our team members’ participation with community groups and charitable events by the giving of their time, talents and treasure. The firm also supports many local charities through fund raisers, volunteering, direct contributions and service on boards.

All this makes the Chattanooga area a better place to live. JHM is proud of our longstanding community-based relationships, and we pledge our continued support.
