Our Firm 2017-10-30T16:11:33+00:00


At Lindeberg & Associates, we combine the experience of a large firm with the personal attention that only a small firm can provide. Our clients come back to us year after year because they know they are in good hands. We work to develop long-term relationships; whether your needs are simple or complex, we can help.


Our firm is committed to high-quality service. Every prepared tax return is also reviewed by one of our CPAs to ensure precision and accuracy. We enjoy working with our clients and each other through a team approach. While this may not yield the fastest turnaround, we believe it is worth the cost to fully stand by our work.
