About Our Firm
O’Connell & Company is a continuation of Robert A. O’Connell & Co. which was founded by George R. O’Connell’s father during the 1930’s. Our objective is to provide quality accounting services to a broad spectrum of clients at reasonable fees. We pride ourselves on the personal service we bring to each and every client.
Over the last decade, O’Connell & Company has grown primarily through client referrals. Since 2015, O’Connell and Company has successfully acquired two accounting firms focused on providing tax and business services to individuals and closely held private companies.
O’Connell & Company provides quality accounting services to a wide spectrum of clients. Our expertise ranges from complex audits, reviews, and financial statement preparation to basic tax management and accounting services. Our commitment to service is why O’Connell & Company is a recognized leader in providing accounting services to a vast array of clients including:
- Private Primary & Secondary Educational Institutions
- Closely-held Private Companies
- Colleges & Universities
- Individual, Partnership, and Corporate Tax Returns
- Religious Organizations
- Social Service Organizations

- Business Associations
By combining our expertise, experience and the team mentality of our staff, we assure that every client receives the close analysis and attention they deserve. Our dedication to high standards is the reason our client base returns year after year and is our main source of referrals for new clients.
We believe the quality of accounting service emanates from the people who actually perform the service. At O’Connell & Company, each client and each engagement is treated individually and must be regarded as important to the overall success of the firm. We strive to be a trusted resource for our clients, helping them achieve their goals.
Providing quality services to our clients requires that all personnel must be proficient in general accounting skills, information technology, and have knowledge of the client's industry and any specialized accounting required. Providing quality professional accounting services also requires that the person providing the services have solid interpersonal skills along with a broad business background. This enables them to assist clients by being a resource for business planning and decision making, for developing sound and practical accounting and reporting systems and controls.
