Experienced. Responsive. Diligent.

The phrase, “Nothing personal, it’s just business,” does not apply to the service provided by Elias Strauss CPAs, LLC (ES). When it comes to advising our clients on accounting, taxation and financial planning, it is our personal interest and knowledge that allows us to appropriately guide our clients and represent their positions. It defines both our culture and our business style.

We pride ourselves on being experienced, responsive and diligent – at all times. This approach to client service molds every interaction and recommendation. Serving clients for more than 35 years, our team of professionals is at your disposal to help you reach your financial goals and objectives, both business and personal.

In order to ensure the best possible fit, ES offers potential clients a free, no-obligation review of your personal and/or business finances, along with our professional recommendations for protecting and growing your resources. Once delivered, we are certain that you will see the benefits of using ES as your financial services partner.


New financial challenges and opportunities emerge every day. Recognizing and harnessing the inherent value in each takes the watchful eye of an experienced team of financial professionals.

ES’s principals – Judy M. Elias and Steven N. Strauss – deliver over 75 years of financial advising experience to every client and situation. This depth and breadth of experience is available to every client. Whether through regular interactions or as needed, it is our principals who drive our solutions-based approach to the management of your finances.

Our level of experience is enhanced by that of our team of tax professionals, accountants, and administrative staff.


When you have a financial question or a problem, it is among the most important things in your life…especially in today’s volatile financial environment. Getting answers and solutions from your financial services advisor should be as easy as making a phone call or sending an email.

ES employs a team approach to representing your best interests. And while each client has their own team, that client is represented by our entire firm. This means that the most appropriate resource to meet your need is available to provide our best guidance and solutions.

This responsiveness also applies to meeting deadlines, either agreed upon or mandated. We respect your time and peace-of-mind and believe that providing outstanding, timely service is vital to your – and our – success.


The ever-changing nature of business demands on-going review and re-evaluation. This is especially true in the field of taxation. Throughout the year, various elements influence the potential tax liabilities of individuals and businesses.

As your financial service partner, ES regularly updates your tax status and helps you determine the best options for legally and appropriately minimizing your tax liabilities. First and foremost, we are an accounting firm and it is our fiduciary responsibility to our clients to remain diligently focused on their financial benefits and liabilities throughout each tax cycle, as well as forecast needs for future tax years.

Our recommendations may include accelerating expenses, deferred compensation plans, taking on capital losses to offset capital gains or entering into a tax-deferred exchange – whatever they may be, we offer tax reduction strategies that may stimulate Wealth Accumulation.
