Our engagement teams are hand-selected by our shareholders based on skill sets and experience and are available around the clock for consultation.

Our Clients' Thoughts On Schneider Downs

"Good two way communication. Every client's needs are unique and different. Schneider Downs understands us based on our size, needs, staff, knowledge and areas we need assistance and do not. It works great and communication is the key to that successful partnership."

"Quality Staff and Management."

"SD management and staff are very professional, but not overly 'text-book'. They take their jobs seriously, but are also great to work with!"

"My experience has been one of timely response and expert guidance in a number of areas."

"LEVEL OF SERVICE"

"Since we starting with Schneider Downs late last year they have provided the best service possible. Every time I call with a question or problem they are extremely quick to response. Couldn't ask for a better company."

"We've had a very good experience with SD&Co over the years and appreciate the strong leadership from the partners and managers on our account. They understand our business and the issues we face each year and provide reasonable alternatives."

"Schneider Downs takes the time to understand the client and their needs. My first project with the team in 2014 was the beginning of a partnership that still exists today. The firm has and continues to be involved in various co-sourcing and consulting engagements due to the depth of knowledge of the firm and more importantly, the results."

"I have found Schneider Downs team members at every level that I've interacted with to be knowledgeable, professional, thorough, responsive and respectful. Schneider Downs is large enough to have the resources to serve our group of entities but small enough to be approachable and to take our tax related and business needs seriously."

"Exceptional client service."
