Suchman & Feinblum
traces its lineage back to 1945, when Milton Schwartz, CPA - a newly discharged Army
veteran - went to work for a sole practitioner, Morris Eisenberg, CPA. In 1950, Eisenberg
decided to retire and sold his practice to Milt, who continued to practice individually.
Milts client list soon became too big for him to handle on his
own so, in 1952, he and an old Army buddy, William Cassler, CPA, merged their practices
and formed the firm of Schwartz & Cassler, CPAs.
In 1962, Allan N. Suchman - then a high school student - began to work
part-time for the firm, mostly during the tax season crunch. This loose affiliation
continued until Allan graduated from Pace College with a degree in accounting at which
time he began his own career as an accountant.
While working for a variety of accounting firms, Allan built up a
substantial practice of his own. In 1979, he decided the time had come to stop being an
employee and to devote his full energies to his own practice. Having maintained close
contact with Milt and Bill through the years, he opened discussions with them about
merging his practice with theirs.
During the period of negotiations, Bill experienced some severe health
problems and decided to retire from the day-to-day business. Finally, in November, 1980,
Milt, Bill, and Allan decided to merge their practices and, together with one of Schwartz
& Casslers long-time employees, Steve Franzman, formed the firm of Schwartz,
Franzman, Suchman and Company, CPAs.
After graduating from City College, David Feinblum, CPA, pursued a
career in the defense industry while also creating a lucrative tax-oriented accounting
practice of his own. In 1984, David was offered, and accepted, a full partnership in the
Things continued apace until 1994, when sudden and unforeseen health
problems forced both Milt and Steve to retire within a few months of each other. At that
time, the firm was renamed Suchman & Feinblum, CPAs.
And thats where weve come from.
