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.
