Fisher, P.A. - Charlotte Boutique Accounting Firm


The original practice was founded in Charlotte almost 30 years ago. Emily A. Fisher, CPA, Principal and Business Advisor of Fisher, P.A. has a background in corporate finance and an entrepreneurial period in the wine and food world. She transitioned into public accounting in 2007 joining as a tax staff, and by October of 2014, developed a succession plan to build a certified public accounting firm for the future.

Three years after Emily’s transition to Principal, Fisher, P.A. announced their new corporate office on 1108 East Boulevard in historic Dilworth. As a Charlotte native, Emily is proud of the beautiful growth of Charlotte and relishes any opportunity to be a partner in its positive energy through direct support of our local communities.
