Axley & Rode, LLP was organized in 1949 with two partners, Branch L. Axley and Carl F. Rode. What started as one office located in Downtown Lufkin, Texas has become a firm with fourteen partners and offices located in Lufkin, Nacogdoches, Livingston and Jasper, Texas. The firm has expanded to over eighty-five personnel (including partners) of which approximately 75% are professionals with twenty-four being CPAs.
Our growth has been driven by our mission, values, strong work ethic, focus on the client and hiring and investing in talented professionals. Our dedication to high standards is what will continue to lead us to a promising future.
The firm provides a complete range of accounting services, including tax planning and compliance, assurance, bookkeeping, and advisory services. We serve businesses, governmental entities, non-profit organizations, entrepreneurs, and individuals in a wide variety of industries across the United States and in other countries.
In order to assure our clients that our firm continues to meet professional quality control standards, we are members of the Private Companies Practice Sections of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Representatives of the AICPA periodically perform reviews of our firm's quality control procedures related to the accounting and auditing services provided to our clients. Professional members of our firm are required to maintain a minimum number of hours of continuing professional education on an annual basis. This allows our professionals to keep abreast of standards related to our profession and the specific industries we serve.
