Our History
Kimerling & Wisdom, LLC was originally founded in 1970 by tax partner Noah Kimerling and his father-in-law Solomon Margulies as Kimerling & Margulies. Our growth began with only a few individual corporate, retail and nonprofit clients. But as word spread of the quality of services being offered, we evolved over the years from Kimerling, & Margulies to Kimerling & Wisdom, LLC.
We have never lost the family-oriented, team environment that has helped us grow. Our people still strive to establish and maintain a close working relationship with each one of the business owners, not-for-profits and individuals we serve—and with each other.
