    Kimerling & Wisdom, LLC was originally founded in 1970 as Kimerling & Margulies by tax partner Noah Kimerling and his father-in-law Solomon 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 strive to establish and maintain a close working relationship with each one of the business owners and individuals we serve—and with each other.
