About Us

About Our Firm

Several years ago, Lee Daniels decided he was spending way too much time running the firm as a managing partner in a large accounting firm. With over twenty years’ experience meeting the needs of businesses and individuals in that environment, he felt he could best meet the needs of his clients by having the time to focus on their specific needs rather than spend most of each day performing management duties. Mr. Daniels carried that vision to this practice. With expertise in many complex areas of taxation, we are large enough to meet your needs but small enough to have an in-depth business relationship with each client.

Daniels Consulting Firm offers a unique approach to the services provided by the “normal” accounting firm. While we offer many services of typical firms, we realize that the clients have other financial needs which either force them to have multiple advisors (with no centralized coordination) or trust in an accounting firm that tries to be everything to everyone. We found that clients’ needs are best met when we evaluate their needs, meet the need we are truly trained and experienced to meet, and provide our network resources to meet needs beyond our scope of services. Simply put, we do not pretend to be your accountant, business consultant, investment advisor, insurance agent, HR consultant, attorney, etc. Hopefully, you get the point! We strive to provide the best accounting and consulting services available and encourage our clients to utilize other professionals in our network that have extensive expertise and stick to their core skills.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help our clients exceed their financial goals today, tomorrow, and for their future generations. This requires open communication to reach an understanding of our clients' needs through research and sound analysis. Daniels Consulting Firm LLC is dedicated to meeting these goals with high standards of excellence and professionalism. We have been a staple of the area's business community for years, and pride ourselves on the level of esteem we have earned.

Our dedication to hard work has earned the respect of the business and financial community in and around the area. We believe this to be a direct derivative of our talent and responsiveness to our client base. Whether you are a current or prospective client, rest assured that individuals and businesses who choose Daniels Consulting Firm LLC receive competent and timely advice.
