In 1984, Howard Faske, Larry Lay, Ben Ryon and Dick Singhaus formed a partnership to continue their association that began in 1970 as staff accountants at Main Lafrentz & Co., a national CPA firm (now part of KPMG Peat Marwick) and later as partners in Gibson Johnson & Co., a local Austin CPA firm.
The four partners shared the same business philosophy – uncompromising service to the client. Throughout its history, Faske Lay & Co., L.L.P. has been dedicated to delivering quality accounting, tax and financial services in an exceptional manner. Ben is now Partner Emeritus and is serving as a consultant to the firm and our clients.
Sharing the same business philosophy of uncompromising service to the client, Joseph Jistel was admitted as a partner in the firm on August 1, 1999 and Jeffrey Miller was admitted as a partner in the firm on January 1, 2008.
All CPA firms engaged in accounting and auditing services must undergo a peer review every three years to ensure the quality of the firm’s accounting and auditing practice meets certain standards established by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). As part of the quality control standards in place at Faske Lay & Co., the firm is a member of the AICPA Peer Review Program which is administered in conjunction with the Texas Society of Certified Public Accountants (TSCPA) Peer Review Program.
As a member of the AICPA/TSCPA Peer Review Programs, our firm is subject to their stringent peer review process which challenges and tests our firm and the system of quality control policies and procedures in effect for our accounting and auditing practice, as well as a detailed review of the quality of our work product delivered during the preceding year. We undergo this peer review process of our accounting and auditing practice every three (3) years, and we received a peer review rating of Pass on the most recent Peer Review Report dated December 15, 2011.
