What Our Policyholders Say

  • CAMICO stood behind me and my firm with outstanding insurance and advice and an excellent selection of expert legal counsel. I would not hesitate to recommend CAMICO to any other CPA firm.

    Donald Lucove, CPALucove, Say & Company - California

  • I’ve been very happy with the responsive guidance I receive from CAMICO regarding issues such as engagement letters, fee and collection problems, disengagement, and potential claims. CAMICO does a great job of replying to our questions, often during the same day. We have looked at other carriers, but there are so many ‘ins and outs’ in professional liability that you realize it’s not just the insurance—it’s the resources and services you receive. We feel that CAMICO is well worth the money.

    Susan Smolenski, Chief Operating Officer DeBoer, Baumann & Company, PLC - Michigan

  • We have always felt comfortable about calling CAMICO, and we even remind our staff that once they have spoken with their supervisor, they can also call CAMICO for guidance. The CPA focus means that CAMICO is on top of CPA-specific issues. The company is also responsive to CPA firms and provides much more service and knowledge than what you’d expect from an insurance carrier. CAMICO understands that the relationship is more important than just the insurance policy, which is why we have been coming back for so many years.

CALIFORNIA

We called CAMICO regarding an unusual situation involving a subpoena that we weren’t sure about how to handle or whether it was a potential claim. We received an immediate response from a CAMICO specialist who answered all of our questions and walked us through the appropriate information. CAMICO also referred us to an attorney, who advised us that the subpoena was defective, and the whole thing went away. But the expert advice was so reassuring at a time when we were uncertain about whether or not we had a problem. The response was incredibly efficient and helpful.

We really appreciate the technical support that CAMICO provides in preventing potential claims from materializing into a full-blown claim. One matter came up that had the potential to rattle us and set us back, but CAMICO handled it so well that the process was completely smooth. The specialists took our worry and basically set it aside as the process unfolded. We also utilize CAMICO’s accounting and auditing advisory services as well as its tax advisory services. The training materials, videos, templates for engagement letters, and website all work very well for us.

CAMICO's advisory services people provided me with extensive advice on disengaging from clients, including advice on disengagement letter language. They also helped me work through a difficult personnel issue to a satisfactory conclusion. It really helps me to be able to talk with an expert about potential problems, even if it's just to gain a little more peace of mind.

My firm switched from another company to CAMICO many years ago because of the technical support we get from CAMICO. We really appreciate the Loss Prevention services such as engagement letter reviews. Being able to call someone when we need expert advice on issues such as modifying engagements, and having someone to wordsmith a letter with us to get it right — those are very valuable services to us.

Ernest F. Howard, CPA
Los Angeles, CA



Our firm has been with CAMICO for many years, and the services we find most helpful are mainly through the Loss Prevention program. We have the opportunity to call CAMICO staff specialists who give us a lot of time and helpful advice with problems in advance of critical decisions and actions. We also like being able to go online to utilize a whole host of sample engagement letters and other documents on the Members-Only Site, and CAMICO provides us with great discounts on several products and services. We’ve enjoyed our association with the company for the many years we’ve been with CAMICO.

I’ve never seen any other insurance company provide the level of services and resources, online and otherwise, that CAMICO provides to CPAs. The most beneficial services for me are the proactive advice, information and materials such as sample engagement letters, consent forms, and other documents. The advice on how to avoid problems in the first place is highly valuable, and if you happen to get into a problem, CAMICO advises you on what steps to take and what resources to employ to mitigate the problem. CAMICO is on your side.

I cannot say how much our firm appreciates the way CAMICO stood behind us and worked with us recently to resolve a claim. We had many ups and downs and challenges during the litigation, but CAMICO stood with us at all times. The way CAMICO dealt with all of the parties involved was professional and terrific.

We regard CAMICO as a partner/consultant that is always looking out for our best interests. We utilize CAMICO’s legal and tax advisory resources, and the experts are always available to provide supportive guidance and advice to us. Also, the training in loss prevention techniques, such as client acceptance procedures, is a big plus, especially when you consider that much of the training comes with CPE. The fact that CAMICO specializes in CPA risk management means that their technical and legal expertise is directly relevant to what we do. We’ve always been proactive in terms of loss prevention, so CAMICO mirrors our own philosophy and then goes a little further. The program has well exceeded my expectations.

MARYLAND

I was requested to sign an employment verification form for a client who was applying for a home loan. The lender had put me in a difficult position by telling the client to ‘have your CPA sign’ the form and implying that I would be ‘holding up the settlement’ if I didn’t. When I called CAMICO, I was immediately put through to a Loss Prevention specialist, who gave me excellent advice as well as some alternative solutions to the problem. I got back to the client, who agreed with one of the proposed solutions. CAMICO made me and our firm look good in an urgent situation by providing responsive service and effective advice. We appreciate CAMICO’s loss prevention and risk management services, which have always been helpful to us over the years we have been policyholders.

We have been satisfied clients of the CAMICO program for many years. We have been fortunate that few claims have been filed against us. When we did require representation, CAMICO’s professionals were very proactive, offering legal assistance that resulted in a favorable resolution of our case. CAMICO understands the special needs of CPA firms, and their cost-effective advice is invaluable in preventing legal action. I know many other CPA firms who use CAMICO’s products and services. Like me, they speak highly of the company and its people.
