Our relationship with this firm throughout an acquisition by Buckno Lisicky & Company, dates all the way back to the 1990’s. The professionalism, care of handling and preparing our returns, the quality the work, and the expeditious responsiveness to our concerns/questions are the main reasons that we stayed with this firm throughout the transitions. Above and beyond all of these reasons, our very pleasant interactions with Eric Hinkle, our current accountant, have provided us with great personal service and a long relationship with a quality firm.

I was referred to Buckno Lisicky & Company many years ago. Besides their reputation, if I have to pick one of the reasons I have stayed with them all of these years, it is the client service provided by Sheila Knappenberger in the Lehighton office. Her top notch treatment, her excellent client service which goes above and beyond and her attention to detail makes me confident that my partnership with this firm was and continues to be the right choice. I would highly recommend Buckno Lisicky & Company because of my partnership with Sheila in handling all of my accounting needs.

Bruce Palmer of Buckno Lisicky & Company has been a great asset to work with all these years. Bruce has been a supportive volunteer with the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. He has been a volunteer on the Chamber’s board for over 10 years. He served as Chair on our audit committee and quickly became the Chamber’s treasurer of our board, while he chairs the finance committee and remains an active member on the audit committee. I worked closely with Bruce for all these years and he has supported me and is quick to answer any questions I may have. Bruce’s guidance as Treasurer helped the Chamber stay financially stable and we can’t thank him enough for all his help.

We started with Jack Lisicky the day we bought our first storage unit company in 1997, after being referred to him by our attorney, and we have been with him ever since. I cannot say enough about Jack and the exceptional relationship we have had with him for over 2 decades. He is not only a GREAT ACCOUNTANT but an even better ALL AROUND GUY! We have grown throughout the years and Jack handles all of our businesses, individual returns and extended family taxes. His knowledge and professionalism is top notch and his responsiveness to our needs goes above and beyond! My partner Joe feels exactly the same way. We couldn’t imagine working with anyone else.

I do not do many testimonials simply because there are not many firms that really deserve one. Every once in a while a firm appears that exceeds expectations. I am pleased to write a testimonial for Buckno-Lisicky and company, as they have been my accountants for more than two decades starting with Stan Busher in the 1990’s and when he retired the team of Joe Mastriani, Jaclyn Gallagher and Sheila Knappenberger took over the account and “customer service” is not just word, they actually provide exceptional service which is so very rare today. I have in the past and will continue in the future to recommend Buckno-Lisicky to friends and business associates without fear that my referral will be anything but a positive experience.

Searching for accounting help with our new non-profit venture, we had hired two different accounting firms in two years until we found Buckno, Lisicky & Company. Joe and Jaclyn are not only a pleasure to work with, they are professional in their knowledge and care of cleaning up our accounting program. The amazing part of working with Jaclyn and Joe was their desire to understand HOW are our non-profit worked and with that knowledge they offered their professional advice to build our bookkeeping and accounting reports that would help us set up project budgets, monitor growth, and offer statistics to our donors and potential investors. This synergy of talent has positioned Discovering MErcy for stable growth and a strong professional team to continue to maintain fiscal integrity as a non-profit organization. I wholeheartedly recommend them!

A big THANK YOU to Bruce Palmer for presenting a very informative and educational session on the Impact of the New Tax Law on Charitable Giving at the Association of Fundraising Professionals Lunch and Learn event. Everyone was impressed and left with a better understanding and knowledge of the effects of the bill. Plus you even made it fun! We greatly appreciated your time and skill in this subject along with your firm’s sponsorship and commitment to non-profits in the Greater Lehigh Valley.

I have been working with Joe Mastriani at Buckno Lisicky & Company for about 10 years now and it has been one of the smartest decisions I have made for my dental practice and for my personal accounting needs. Joe is very knowledgeable; prompt; goes out of his way to answer any questions and makes sure that his clients fully comprehend their financial standings. I have referred a lot of my friends to him over the years and will continue to do so. I highly recommend Joe and his firm to anyone looking for an excellent CPA to handle their accounting needs.

Although I worked with Buckno Lisicky & Company through the 80’s and 90’s with a different type of business, what impressed me the most was their willingness to take on a brand new start-up business. When our business needed help, Matt Leiner and his team provided sound business advice, uncovered tax strategies and business planning opportunities as our business began to grow. I find great comfort in their ability to accommodate our growing and ever-changing needs from small items such as QuickBooks® support all the way to a full network of financial and professional resources. By providing guidance, meeting new challenges and developing a structure for future growth in the United States and Internationally, we look forward to enjoying continued success with Buckno Lisicky & Company as a resource for our business.

Purchasing my Uncle Bob’s company, which he built from the ground up, proved to be a more complicated undertaking than I originally anticipated and it became clear that the current accountant was not equipped to handle this type of transaction. Our attorney recommended Lou LeMaster because of his expertise in this area and his ability to deliver has been exceptional. With Lou’s guidance, we navigated through all of the options for the business transfer to come up with an agreement beneficial to both parties. To this day, Lou continues to be a true business advisor and ongoing resource for our company, besides handling our day-to-day accounting needs and tax planning. Beyond the business relationship, I have come to Lou for advice and guidance for personal financial situations as well.

As Founder and CEO of Fluortek, I have been working with Buckno Lisicky & Company since my company’s move to Pennsylvania over 25 years ago, when I chose Jack Lisicky to be my accountant out of several options. When Michael Pickett was introduced into the mix and became the lead Partner, not only did a long business relationship commence but a personal one as well. Michael has been a tremendous source of advice for not only all of my business ventures and tax planning but also a source for questions on day-to-day operations.One of the most impressive services that Michael provided was his impeccable handling of a multi-year audit conducted by the IRS. I received a letter which stated that not one item had to be changed and that there was not one discrepancy noted throughout the audit period. To this day, the IRS letter remains framed on my office wall and reminds me that I am dealing with a professional company that does everything above board.I sleep very well at night knowing that I work with a company that is very knowledgeable, straight forward and provides the best advice not only on a business level but personal level as well.

Joe Mastriani has been my accountant for most of my business career. He helped me set up the accounting software in our office and continues giving us advice whenever we encounter a problem. He was my primary adviser when I purchased the practice from my partner. He's given me guidance on business purchases, investments, taxes, and also personal financial advice. His advice has always been accurate and he ensures that I understand my options and the applicable regulations. And Joe always returns my calls promptly.Joe has also gone above and beyond to learn about veterinary medicine. He is an industry partner of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association. He regularly collects, analyzes, and distributes the financial benchmarks for veterinary practices in the area. National and state societies provide national and statewide data, but the local data is much more relevant and valuable.Joe was also the accountant for a joint venture of a group of us. He was there from conception, setting up shares, getting funding and leasing our first building, through purchasing the property and a major rebuild to the selling of the business.The main reason I stick with Buckno Lisicky & Company is the service Joe Mastriani has provided. While Buckno Lisicky & Company is a large firm with a wide range of accounting specialties and assets available, I've always received great personal service. Joe has always provided more than expected. When my two partners bought into the practice, Joe helped them with their first tax return as partners but he also reviewed their prior tax returns, refiled them and they both got money back that was missed when first filed. Both continue to be Joe's clients.Joe Mastriani is a trusted adviser and friend.

After having a long standing relationship with Steve Dobrosky, we were acquired as a new client of Buckno Lisicky & Company and the positive experiences continued. They not only walked me through the sale of my first company, but also saved me a lot of money in the process. Upon returning to the Lehigh Valley after a 7 year absence, Bruce Palmer reintroduced me and my new company back to the community. What I can say is that Bruce Palmer and Buckno Lisicky & Company not only get involved, they truly make a difference!
