Headache Free

Serving clients for over 70 years


About our firm

Our accounting firm was started in 1946 by two men, Dennis Brenner and Paul Lippold. They started Brenner & Company from their kitchen table.

Over the years our firm has grown but the vision has not changed. We have succeeded by staying grounded in the practical fundamentals that have made our small business successful: know what you do well, and apply your expertise with the utmost integrity. Today we work with individuals, business entities, non-profits, trusts and estates. We believe that if your accountant is only filling out your tax forms, you're missing out on the best of what a good accountant can offer.

At the core of our success is a team of partners and staff with a wealth of experience, and wide ranging expertise. Our greatest victories are those of our clients, and we take great pride being put in a position to help them succeed.

Managed Accounting

Focus on your business, not your accounting department.

Today's accounting department needs to be as agile as your business. Rather than entrusting your most sensitive business information to a marginally skilled cast of characters, entrust your back office functions to the experts. We've been around the block, and we know the tools to use.
