Advisory Services

We provide exit planning, valuation, litigation support and consulting to support our clients' most challenging business decisions. Our deep bench of expert CPAs guides our clients on an array of financial issues.

Our CPAs are experts in tax preparation, audits and outsourced accounting, but that’s not all we do. When you hire us, we become your partner in a wide range of financial issues. We think strategically, offer valuable insight and guide you to make the best financial decisions possible for you and your business.

Gelman, Rosenberg & Freedman cares deeply about the success of each of our clients. In response to our clients’ needs for additional advice or guidance, we have stepped outside the usual service offering of a CPA firm to offer advisory services.

GRF’s Advisory Services

You may need advice on challenging business issues or divorce proceedings. Or perhaps you just need a fresh, innovative approach to complex financial matters. Whatever the situation, our team can help. When you work with GRF, you can count on our deep bench of business expertise to guide you through a range of financial needs, including:

Tax guidance

Some of the CPAs on our tax team also hold a master’s degree in taxation. This advanced level of education, combined with our experience handling all types of tax situations, ensures that clients receive high-quality tax planning advice. We guide individuals (including international employees) and companies toward the best decisions possible to meet their objectives. Learn more about our approach to tax.

Exit planning

Our certified exit planners help business owners grow the value of their company. We can help ensure they transition it to a family member or position it for sale at the desired price and within the desired timeframe. Learn more about exit planning.


Our team includes CPAs Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) as well as Certified Valuation Analysts (CVAs). These designations allow us to accurately determine the value of your business or personal assets to support your legal case or business transaction. Learn more about valuation.
