Dan James, CPA


Dan is a manager specializing in business tax and attestation services. He began his accounting career with Milhouse & Neal, LLP in 2010 following his graduation from Rockhurst University. He obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting and a minor in Theology; and was a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity. Upon graduation Dan fervently studied for the CPA exam and passed all 4 sections on his first attempt. This is quite an impressive accomplishment considering statically only 1 in 5 candidates pass on the first sitting. He exceeds the annual requirements of the Continuing Professional Education program of the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants. He is a member of the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants and the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.

As a tax professional in public accounting his experience spans a range of industries and his emphasis has been as a generalist helping small business and individual clients with a wide range of consulting, planning, accounting, tax and QuickBooks issues.

Dan’s favorite part of being a licensed CPA is that he is able to constantly learn and apply his knowledge of accounting to solve new and challenging problems for clients. He enjoys working with and getting to know our clients through the many engagements he is assigned to. His open-minded and personable demeanor makes him a pleasure to have on the team.

Outside of work, Dan is an involved father who’s experiencing the joys, trials, and tribulations of navigating life with two sweet baby girls. If he has any spare time, he enjoys trying out a new craft beer at one of the many local breweries.

He’s an enthusiastic MLB fan and after graduating college he set out on an eight-day road trip to the east coast with a plan to visit as many major league baseball stadiums as he could. Logically speaking, arranging a trip like this is quite a challenge. With extensive and meticulous planning, he and his brothers flew from St. Louis to Rochester, NY then drove 1,800 miles to watch seven back to back games in eight days – missing not one opening pitch.
