Topp McWhorter Harvey, PLLC was founded in 1977 by Carl Nicholson. It has since grown to be the seventh largest firm in Mississippi, according to the Mississippi Business Journal's 2011 Book of Lists. With over one hundred years of combined experience amoung our partners, TMH possesses the mature ability to compete with the services of any national firm.

We have built a client base in excess of one thousand, consisting mostly of long standing clients. Our growth and success have been accomplished following our philosophy of one-on-one attention with each of our clients, large and small.

We have been very careful to develop a staff which is diverse in ability and experience, yet connected with this region. Presently, our firm consists of over fifty staff members, with twenty-seven members being designated as Certified Public Accountants with a license to practice public accounting in the State of Mississippi. Some of our members are licensed in other states, as well. Several of our partners and staff were trained in national firms.

The firm is committed to providing personal service and production of the highest quality work. To advance our efforts in this regard, the firm belongs to the Private Companies Practice Section of the Division for CPA Firms of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. As a member of this section, we have undergone a peer review of our audit practice and system of quality control on a regular basis.
