About Us

Friedman & Huey Associates LLP, founded in 1985, is a distinctive full service certified public accounting firm serving clients in most of the United States. We have "large firm" expertise yet small firm responsiveness and fee structure. We are more than accountants and tax experts, we are consultants who can augment your knowledge and talents to improve your financial picture. Over the years, we have earned our outstanding reputation by providing clients with exceptional service.

Out of more than 40,000 CPA firms across the United States, the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) honored Friedman & Huey as a Group of 400 (G400) honoree – one of the 500 largest CPA firms in the country by number of AICPA members. The AICPA separates the country’s 100 largest CPA firms into a separate group called the G100. The G400 represents the next 400 largest firms in the United States and there are only about 20 of these CPA firms in Illinois.

Quality

Our partners and staff are committed to quality, it is the cornerstone of everything we do. We take pride in establishing long-lasting client relationships and receiving new client referrals. We are known for innovative thinking and accuracy; our answers are creative, well researched and correct.

Responsiveness

We take pride in our availability. We are there for our clients, in person and when and where they need us. Because the engagement team remains the same, you will talk to someone who knows your individual situation and understands your concerns each time you call. Our partners are ultimately involved in all aspects of each engagement and do not merely act as figurehead leaders.

Adaptability

Because we are a medium-sized firm, we take pride in our ability to tailor our services to meet your specific needs. We recognize that each engagement is unique and we thoroughly investigate each situation to provide a customized approach.

Proactive

We are proactive in our approach and bring a wealth of expertise to each client relationship. Because most of our partners are also teachers, having taught at local universities or professional societies and various forums, we are up to date on tax law issues and we bring the most current information to each engagement.

Continuity

Building strong relationships is of paramount importance to our firm. The firm is composed of working partners who are involved in every aspect of the business. With our low staff turnover, the team assigned to your account remains in place throughout the relationship. Today, although our business has grown, we have retained most of the original clients (or their younger generations) who helped us launch our firm in 1985.

No Outsourcing

We do not outsource any work overseas. All returns are prepared in our offices and under our direct supervision. We have one of the largest tax-season internship programs in the Chicagoland area which leads to many of these interns getting full-time jobs with us and clients.
