Carpenter and Langford, PLLC was founded in 1991 by Jean Carpenter-Backus, CPA and Joe Langford, CPA. Our aim then, as now, was to provide the quality service associated with large national firms and the personal attention expected of a small, local firm. We´ve enjoyed steady growth since we first opened our doors. In 1999 we added an additional partner, James T. Ragland, CPA, and Kevin Lenahan, CPA became a partner at the end of 2009. Crystal Smith, CPA and Brett Laine, CPA became partners in early 2015.
Carpenter and Langford, PLLC´s partners and clients derive great benefit from our professional and paraprofessional staff, many of whom have years of experience. Our growth in professional staff has afforded us the opportunity to broaden the scope of resources available to our clients. We remain a leading provider of accounting and tax planning and preparation services, as well as business consulting services, bookkeeping, audit, compilation, and IRS representation.
