Who We Are
SMDW has been serving the accounting needs of the Texas Panhandle for over 30 years. Our Amarillo based firm covers a multitude of accounting and financial services from tax compliance and auditing financial statements to estate planning and bookkeeping. Whether your needs are big or small, personal or business, for profit or not-for-profit, or a mix of all of the above, we can help you find a solution that works well for your situation.
Many firms offer a service to their customers, but SMDW truly strives to serve our clients. We serve because our clients are our neighbors, friends, and community leaders, and that means something to us. We pride ourselves in taking the time to answer the little questions, provide sensible responses, and be there when clients need us most.
The best way we know to meet the needs of our clients is to hire the top talent around. We have drawn from nine different colleges to bring in quality staff with diverse industry experience. By emphasizing quality at every level, we have been able to meet many goals, both personal and professional alike. From those successes, we have established a well-respected, family-oriented firm that we can be proud of. But this is just the tip of the iceberg.
SMDW realizes that companies don't have experience or talent on their own, but their employees do. For us, we draw upon our partners for much of that experience.
Gathered around a small table in Downtown Amarillo in September of 1989, Norman Stewart, Thalia Martin, Clay Dudley, and Walter Webb began discussing the idea of forming an accounting firm specializing in tax and audit services. After a little head-scratching, pencil-whipping a few numbers and some handshakes, SMDW was formed. Each member brought with them a handful of clients, excitement, and Big 4 accounting firm experience.
In over 30 years of operation, we have tripled in size and have added bookkeeping and other numerous financial services as we grow to accommodate more of our clients' needs. We are truly grateful for the clients that have come our way and made this all possible.
It starts and ends with service.
At SMDW, our final product is rarely just a stack of complicated tax forms or complex financial statements. We want to make sure that our clients are getting exactly what they need. To ensure that satisfaction, we are willing to take the time to answer the phone and meet with our customers, whether that means an individual or an entire Board of Directors, to discuss practical accounting solutions to the challenges that day-to-day business presents.
My problems are complicated; can SMDW help?
We understand that life and business often present you with thorny situations or demanding deadlines. With over 100 years of collective accounting experience between our partners alone, we draw upon tested knowledge to tackle the most complicated financial obstacles. Our diverse client base has also given us familiarity with many different aspects of the accounting industry.
