Accountants In Charleston SC
Legare Bailey and Hinske, LLC began in 1996 under the name LegareBailey, LLC, located in the West Ashley area of Charleston, South Carolina. Dan Legare spent his early accounting career as a sole practitioner in public accounting as well as a professor at Charleston Southern University. Mark Bailey started his accounting career with Deloitte & Touche, focusing primarily on audit and taxation, and worked as a controller for an auto aftermarket retail company before starting LegareBailey, LLC with Dan Legare in 1996. In July 2005, the firm moved to its present location in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina.
In 2007, after spending 12 years as a senior tax manager at Dixon Hughes, PLLC (and formerly Gamble Givens and Moody, LLC), Joseph Hinske joined the firm and became partner in 2009. His expertise includes the taxation of estates and trusts and flow-through entity taxation.
As a full service accounting firm, we have merged the experience of our partners together with our present staff of six associates, some of whom held management and supervisory positions at regional public accounting firms prior to joining Legare, Bailey and Hinske, LLC. Our talented team includes seven Certified Public Accountants and two Certified Business Valuation Analysts. While our office is located in Mt. Pleasant, we also service clients in the Charleston area as well the tri-county area surrounding Charleston.
Our most important product is personalized and prompt accounting services for our clients. We take tremendous professional and personal pride in being responsive to our clients' accounting and financial needs. We are available when our clients need us, and often before they realize a problem exists. Handling potentially troublesome situations before they evolve into problems leaves a lot more time and energy to devote toward productive opportunities. Tax planning ideas, tax legislation, and financial reporting issues, along with items of local or regional significance, are covered in periodic mailings to clients. We regularly send information bulletins to clients and industry groups through e-mail and social media.
At Legare, Bailey and Hinske, LLC, accountability is what our business is all about. Our experience encompasses all phases and levels of public accounting practice. We provide auditing, accounting, tax, financial planning, management and consulting services, business valuation, and forensic accounting services. Nearly all facets of the economic spectrum are represented among our clients in manufacturing, construction, wholesale, retail, restaurant, real estate, health services, advertising, tax-exempt organizations, professional service firms, and other industries. Our partners and associates are active in professional organizations on both the local and national levels including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the tax division of the AICPA, National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NAVCA), and the South Carolina Association of Certified Public Accountants (SCACPA). We are also active in local business organizations, civic and philanthropic organizations, and churches. We are truly a local Charleston firm which has worked hard to establish an excellent reputation and good rapport with the financial and accounting community.
