Firm Profile

Adelson & Company PC is an accounting and advisory firm that believes the level of personal and professional service our team delivers is our greatest strength.

The firm of Adelson & Company traces its roots back to Benjamin Wolfe who began an accounting practice in Pittsfield, Massachusetts in 1938. He was later joined by future directors Gordon J. Adelson in 1949 and Seymour Schwartz in 1958.  In 1968 Richard Jette entered the firm, followed by Richard LaFleche in 1973 and Vincent Viscuso in 1978. The firm became known as Adelson, Schwartz, & Jette P.C. in 1977. The current directors now form the core of an organization that consists of 20 accounting and administrative team members which includes 10 certified public accountants.

Adelson & Company approaches every client relationship with a team consisting of a Director, back-up Director, Manager or supervisor, staff member and client project coordinator.  We take this approach to ensure our clients always have access to a member of their advisory team, to ensure the timely delivery of services, and for clients to maximize the benefits and timely access to the many services Adelson & Company provides.  This structure also ensures the succession of the firm and the growth of our team of advisors. 

All work performed on behalf of our clients is under the personal supervision of one of our directors. We believe the wide range of knowledge and experience of our team is -- and will continue to be -- our greatest strength.  Continuity of service to clients is assured both by the long association of the directors, and by the high caliber of our team.

The firm's general objectives are summarized as follows:

  • To help our clients achieve their business and personal goals and assist in navigating the challenges that may arise along the way;
  • To provide our personnel with challenging opportunities for personal and professional growth and development;
  • To provide a pleasant and rewarding working environment for our personnel;
  • To make meaningful contributions to the improvement of our community and our profession;
  • To continue to grow, but to retain our personal approach to client service, and;
  • To always conduct our practice in a highly professional, ethical and objective manner.
