About Our Firm

For years, our firm was known as Grant and Silverman CPA's - a full service accounting, tax and financial advisory practice that dates back to 1954. On July 1, 2003, we began a new chapter in our history by changing our name to:

Silverman, Kaplan & Sakwa, CPA's, PC


With quality service and a commitment to personalized attention as our hallmark, we believed it was only fitting that our name reflect the principals dedicated to leading this effort-Isadore Silverman (1923-2012), our founding member, Alan Kaplan, shareholder since 1979 and Stuart Sakwa, shareholder since 1981.

In January of 2015 Alan Salomon was named a third Partner to the Firm. In addition to being a CPA, Alan brings with him extensive knowledge in the area of business valuation and possesses the valuation credentials of ABV (Accredited in Business Valuation by the American Institute of CPA's) and CVA (Certified Valuation Analysis with the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts).


The firm provides a full range of services from basic accounting, tax return preparation and financial statement preparation to highly specialized tax, financial planning & business valuation service engagements. Our clients cover all areas of business, both large and small. We are particularly strong in servicing closely held companies which typically requires the kind of personalized attention that is our hallmark.

Our firm consists of three partners, eleven senior accountants, one paraprofessional, an office manager and three administrative staff members. We also have relationships with outside service specialists to provide additional value to our clients.
