Mowery & Schoenfeld, LLC was founded in 1996 by members of large firms looking for a new, more personal way to do accounting. With a focus on building a community of the highest-quality accountants, partnering each day with our diverse network of clients, we prove this vision can be a reality. We are a full-service accounting firm providing tax, accounting, assurance, transaction advisory, wealth management and business advisory services. Made up of 10 partners and 80 total employees, our Firm ranks among the top 10 in Illinois.

We focus on the development of our client’s businesses, rather than on the historical measurement and compliance work often done by CPA firms. Our approach creates value for our clients and satisfaction for our team members.
