Cowboy has been with the firm for 2.5 years and has absolutely no experience with tax, accounting, or any business related issues. In fact, he has very little intelligence and no common sense.
Cowboy does bring incredible value to the firm by greeting all of our clients, providing moral support, providing calming comfort during busy times, and occasionally, providing random chaos and barking outbursts for no apparent reason. In his spare time, Cowboy likes spending time with his family, chasing deer, harassing cats, and drinking beer on the weekends. His favorite pastime is boating.
