Louis DeLuca, CPA, MST


Louis “Lou” joined the Firm in 1996 after spending nearly a decade at Altschuler, Melvoin & Glasser (now part of RSM McGladrey). Lou specializes in individual and partnership taxation, working on many of the firm’s real estate partnerships, investment partnerships, and high net worth families. Highly technical and a numbers guy, he is the partner in charge of the firm’s finances. Lou truly enjoys helping each of his clients to achieve their life goals and he is there with them each step of the way. 

Lou is a member of the AICPA and IL CPA Society. 

With three children, one grandchild, three rescue dogs, and two birds, it’s safe to say Lou is a true family man.  When not spending time with his family, you might find him on the slopes, the trails, or in the stands as he is an avid snow skier, enjoys hiking, and an Iowa Hawkeye’s football fan.

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.


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.


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.


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.
