Our Story

Croniser, Lawrence & Philippe CPAs LLP is building on a long and successful heritage. The firm began in the early 1960s as Hunt and Hunt. Vinal and Don Hunt were a father/son accounting team who moved around a bit before finally settling in the current location of 5564 Woodlawn Avenue, Lowville, in the late 1960s. From the beginning, Hunt and Hunt strove to maintain the highest standards from Don Hunt being the first CPA in Lowville to incorporating technology via computers in the income tax preparation process as early as the 1970s. After Vinal and Don both retired, the Hunt and Hunt name changed to Nagy & Croniser CPAs LLP with John Nagy and Gary Croniser, both long-term employees, as partners. In 2009, Scott Lawrence, also a long-term employee, was added as a partner, and John Nagy retired fully in 2012 leaving the firm in the capable hands of Gary and Scott.  In 2015, Emily Philippe joined the partnership, and the firm name changed to Croniser, Lawrence & Philippe CPAs LLP to reflect this addition. Most recently, Gary Croniser retired on December 31, 2018 after 45 years of dedicated service. Many professionals and clients have been a part of the firm's rich history, and the staff continues to follow Hunt and Hunt's example of seeking excellence in the services provided to Lewis County.
