Shandling & Landsman, LLP is the continuation of predecessor firms that date back to 1913. Our commitment today is the same as when the firm was founded. We provide our clients with unsurpassed service in accounting, tax preparation, tax planning and many other forms of financial services. We take pride in the fact that we have developed not only a diverse clientele, but also one that has in many instances spanned four generations. We strive to not only offer services for our current clients but for their family and heirs yet to come. We make it a point to try to get to know each and every one of our clients in order to better serve them. In many cases this has not only led to good business relations but to personal ones as well. While we are a small firm we have vast experiences in many types of accounting and tax issues. We have resources available to our clients for every financial need, such as insurance, estate planning, retirement planning and more. Our firm's philosophy, which has not changed since it was founded, is to put our client's needs first. As an example, in the heyday of the aggressive tax shelters which came back to haunt most investors, we refused to put our clients in investments which did not have a sound financial basis for risking their money. This was true in light of the fact that commissions were available to the firm for every investment that would have been made by our clients. While many firms today have obtained insurance licenses so that they share in the commission earned by the insurance brokers we have refused to participate in this newest form of increasing revenue. We believe it is important for our clients to know that if we think there is a need for insurance that we have no ulterior motive behind the recommendation. It is matter of developing and maintaining a level of trust between our clients and us that has sustained and allowed us to continue to grow as a firm.
