Since 1918, businesses and other organizations have considered the opinion of Aldridge, Borden & Company before making important business decisions. Such confidence is directly related to the skills and integrity of Aldridge, Borden & Company’s employees and our commitment to quality.

Our unique audit approach incorporates the knowledge gained from proficient business valuations. Several of our Attestation managers are also certified valuation analysts and we are committed to developing this mindset in all our staff.
