About Us

Our Story

 

 

 

For over 60 years, our firm has been earning clients’ trust by being truly useful to them—consistently delivering superior service based on deep industry knowledge, valuable insight, technical skills, personal attention, responsiveness and significant partner involvement. Our long-standing relationships with our clients are true testaments to our role as a trusted business partner. Our firm has grown steadily throughout the years by utilizing a client-focused approach. Today, the firm has an outstanding reputation built upon a philosophy of excellence and a dedication to quality and integrity.

In 2018, Beall Barclay & Company, PLC and the Little Rock office of Thomas & Thomas, LLP merged their practices to become Landmark PLC, Certified Public Accountants.

The Thomas & Thomas story began in 1953 in Texarkana, Arkansas, as a partnership between two brothers, Ed and Pat Thomas. The Thomas brothers worked hard to build a firm with a reputation for outstanding service, and over the years, the firm grew to include a Little Rock location.

The Beall Barclay story began in 1963 in Fort Smith, Arkansas, with Bill Beall and grew into one of the largest locally-owned CPA firms in the state of Arkansas. Over the years, the firm completed several strategic mergers with other local firms, including a merger in the ’90s with former State Representative Dick Barclay’s firm, which expanded our presence into Northwest Arkansas. In the early 2000s, Beall Barclay opened a Russellville location.

In 2021, Arizona-based Monheit Frisch CPAs joined the Landmark team. Monheit Frisch is a multi-generational family business that began in 1971 when Howard Monheit and his wife, Carole, opened a sole-proprietorship CPA practice in Sun City, Arizona. Over the years, the firm grew to include Howard and Carole’s son, David Monheit, who became a CPA in 1991. In 2001, Gary Frisch joined the team after marrying David’s sister. In 2003, David obtained the Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) designation through the AIPCA and began a complementary wealth management practice. His practice is now part of Landmark Financial LLC, and he and Gary continue to serve both CPA and wealth management clients.

LANDMARK’S SERVICE APPROACH

Landmark’s unique approach is illustrated by our service model, which integrates and successfully aligns your professional and personal financial situations. While most CPA firms focus their attention solely on the “compliance and reporting” aspects of their clients’ organizations, we specialize in a much broader range of services to enhance your full financial well-being. We provide a 360-degree financial perspective that leads to better results.

Our broad range of services rival those of much larger regional and national firms, but the seamless integration of these services and personal attention differentiates Landmark from the competition. Our team is dedicated to providing clients with flexible, cost-effective solutions defined by a personal, hands-on approach.
