Joined GGFL 2013

Became a Partner 2015

My strong work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit comes from a lifetime surrounded by hard working entrepreneurs, including my father, who owned and operated his own business. When I worked for him, I came to understand the types of issues that business owners are faced with on a daily basis, and it’s what drives me to want to help my clients succeed.

I specialize in tax, estate planning, and corporate reorganizations. I work with a diverse client base and provide a wide variety of services to businesses and business-owners in countless industries. I enjoy getting to know my clients and their business well so that I truly understand their needs and challenges. This ultimately enables me to provide tailored service and sound strategic advice.

Chad joined GGFL in 2013 after spending much of his career with an international accounting firm. He was named partner in 2015.

He provides a personal touch that gives me the sense that I’m more than just a client, and that he is genuinely concerned and looking out for my best interests. I could not ask for more.”
