My practice is primarily in the area of tax preparation and planning for individuals, small businesses, partnerships and trusts. I stress personal service to my clients.
My background is an undergraduate degree in mathematics from Illinois State University and a master's degree in accounting from the University of Illinois. I passed the CPA exam in May 1971 and worked as an auditor for Peat, Marwick, Mitchell (now KPMG) for several years. I also worked for and was a partner in a small Downers Grove accounting firm for fourteen years before opening my office in January 1995.
