Leonard C. Sweet

In my work, the numbers tend to look the same. It's the unique individuals I interact with every day that make my job interesting. I find it fulfilling to not only learn how my clients' businesses operate, but to meet the people behind the numbers and help them succeed.

OVERVIEW

Since 1998, Leonard has been providing tax and consulting services to a diverse client base nationwide, including numerous family-owned businesses and various pass-through entities. Leonard also provides estate planning and succession planning to high net worth and small business clients.

In his work, Leonard has learned that anyone can crunch numbers; what his clients need is a relationship with a trusted advisor... and that's exactly what he aims to give them. Leonard has his client's best interest at heart and is committed to giving them the very best service he can.

Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, Leonard is a die-hard Seahawks fan. Typically, he catches the games in the comfort of his home but looks forward to his son's first game at CenturyLink Field. When he has the time, Leonard enjoys a round of golf but is quick to admit it isn't his strong suit; some things in life are just for fun.
