About Us

“I’ve lived here for about 40 years, and it’s nice to be able to give back.” – Herb Root, CPA and tax associate at our Marietta office. 

That quote sums up the sentiments of our Marietta team. For over two decades, the team has provided high-quality and insightful financial advice to their local community. 

And we are proud and excited to announce that this 30+ strong team has expanded after welcoming our newest team members from Chaffins, Batdorf & Austell, LLC on December 1, 2021. 

We are excited to have partners, Doug Chaffins and Terry Batdorf, along with five additional CPAs and one accountant, join our Fricke & Associates Family. This group brings over 30 years of experience in financial planning, tax services, and accounting to our team and the Marietta community at large. 

We’ve already started incorporating these skilled professionals into the daily workflow. One of our latest videos highlights the merger and introduces some of our new team members. 

In the video, we heard from tax associate Tracy McGaha and partner Doug Chaffins, both formerly from Chaffins, Batdorf & Austell. 

“Everyone has been open to helping; everyone has an open-door policy,” said McGaha.

Regarding joining our team, Chaffins remarked, “One of the things I’m looking forward to this year is the synergy that we’re going to have between our two firms.” 

Not only are we looking forward to working with this thriving firm and adding their skillsets to our team, but we also know that this move will allow us to provide even more robust and dynamic services to the Marietta community. Ultimately, this merger positions us to better serve our and Chaffins, Batdorf & Austell’s clients. 

Chaffins reinforced this sentiment in our team introduction video, “Now, coming together, our staff will work side-by-side, and I think that’ll be a huge benefit to our client bases.” 

Our new Marietta team members are looking forward to offering exceptional accounting, tax, and professional consulting services to the local community.
