Welcome to S. Landau Services

I provide financial services and investment planning to individuals and businesses.

My business is about my relationship with my clients. I enjoy every opportunity of getting to know someone on a personal level, and then getting the chance to work together on improving their financial future. 

In addition to preparing and filing your tax return, I can also help develop a plan that takes into account your financial circumstances and tax status, and considers your college, retirement, and estate planning goals. 

When you are ready to schedule a meeting, feel free to contact us through the website, email, or by phone.

Investments and financial planning services are offered by Steven Landau through his affiliation with Avantax.
