How can I tell if a tax accountant is on the up-and-up?

I'm meeting with a tax accountant for the first time on Wednesday. I'm a freelancer who gets my income from a number of sources (a combination of freelancing and part time salary work), so my taxes are pretty complicated. Two friends who do similar work recommended this guy, and said he got them big refunds last year, despite having almost no taxes withheld all year. I'm a newbie to taxes -- when meeting this guy, how can I tell whether he's on the up-and-up or whether he's going to get me audited?
