About Us

About Our Firm

Our firm formed on January 1, 1997 when three CPAs, Al Bisceglia, Dick Steiman and Jon Fudeman, together with their respective staffs, merged their individual practices to form our partnership. Each of the partners had substantial experience and long-term client relationships before the merger. This structure affects the way our firm serves clients even today. A client works primarily with one CPA, and a professional but personal relationship forms between them. We received a peer review rating of pass in 2014. Bisceglia, Steiman & Fudeman, LLP's expertise ranges from basic tax management and accounting services to more in-depth services such as audits, financial statements, and financial planning.
