2023 Day of Service – Holiday Heroes

Posted by on 12:08 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

A busy December began with our annual Day of Service, this year working with Holiday Heroes. We packed activity kits for this amazing crew to take into pediatric hospitals and health care facilities dressed as super heroes to brighten the children’s days. The time spent elbows deep in stickers, labels, masks and kids’ costume capes flew by. Knowing that there would be smiles on children’s faces later only enhanced the fun.

LLG named one of the 2023 Best Places to Work in Illinois!

Posted by on 2:00 pm in Uncategorized | Comments Off on LLG named one of the 2023 Best Places to Work in Illinois!



What can we say?! We always knew that LLG was a fun place to work at and has one of the best crews around! It gives us great pride to announce that the Daily Herald in partnership with Illinois Chamber and GOA Regional Business Association and Workforce recognizes LLG as well. We are winners in the Small Business Division, #4 of the Accounting firms and #28 overall! It has been said that behind every great company is a great team and this couldn’t be more true. LLG professionalism, dedication, and hard work are a testament to this.

A small Friday crew was on hand to ring in the good news and of course, enjoy the ultimate — CAKE FOR BREAKFAST!

The recipe making LLG one of the best places to work begins with the integrity of the Partners who manifest the ideas and ethics of reliability, honesty, and exceptional and uncompromising standards. Respect is a crucial ingredient. Add a dash of work/life balance, and sprinkle in summer hours, volunteer events, summer outings, after tax season events, holiday parties. The cherry on top has got to be a remarkable benefits package consisting of paid medical and dental coverage, health and flexible spending accounts, life insurance, long-term disability, firm-matched retirement plans, flexible work hours, maternity leave, and CPA exam study days.

LLG encourages communication and creativity. We promote a culture where standards, accountability, and uncompromising integrity are hallmarks in any field. We know that numbers do not tell the whole story. Numbers do not build long-lasting relationships, people do. Our firm stands as advocates for your bottom line and never takes for granted how much we touch our clients’ lives.

Retiring After 48 Years.

Best Wishes to Rick Winer!



“Never underestimate the difference you’ve made and the lives you’ve touched.”

After six and half years at LLG, and many, many more of devoted service to his clients, Rick Winer has decided that December 31, 2022 will mark his retirement from the profession. This was not an easy decision for Rick, but he is looking forward to spending more time with his family, friends and personal pursuits. While we are extremely sad that Rick will no longer be working with us on a day to day basis, we fully understand and appreciate that he has more than earned the right to make this decision and we respect, appreciate and support his plan.

We know you will all join in thanking Rick for all he has accomplished and wishing him a long and healthy retirement. We have come to know Rick as a CPA of the highest quality, but even more than that, to recognize him as a dedicated individual with integrity and pride in his work and an unrelenting desire to do so in the best interests of his clients. He is an example to all. We thank Rick and wish him a wonderful retirement!

Should any client questions arise during this transition, Rick has graciously agreed to assist. Lipschultz Levin & Gray, LLC has, for eighty years, been serving the needs of businesses and individuals. We do so in a manner similar to the way Rick served his clients through his firm Winer & Associates for nearly forty years, which is why our merger in 2016 has been so successful. We are certain that Fred Fitzpatrick, his entrepreneurial group and our wider team of 31 dedicated individuals will continue to meet or exceed your expectations as we move forward towards 2023.
