Leavitt Siegal LLC is a boutique tax and accounting firm servicing entrepreneurs, funded start-ups and small and midsized businesses. The partners, Karen Leavitt and Sandra Siegal, have a combined 45 years of experience working with individuals and their businesses. Previous to working with us, many of our clients felt that over the years their accountants weren’t giving them the personal attention they deserved.  That they were viewed as a number, not as an individual.  At Leavitt Siegal LLC, we understand that feeling. That is why we started our firm.  We handle every single one of our clients, big or small, with the personal touch they deserve.  We take pride in building a lifelong relationship with all our clients. That’s why our motto “Proven Experience with a Personal Touch isn’t just a slogan, but a set of values we live by.
