Meet Our Team

Lewis, Kaufman, Reid, Stukey, Gattis & Co., P.C. (LKRSG) traces its roots back to 1956 when Alex H. Williams moved from Lubbock to open a Certified Public Accounting firm in Muleshoe.

Out of that firm, Alex's son Don Williams moved to Plainview in 1977 and the firm has grown to 16 people in 2011. The current stockholders, Martin Lewis, Randy Kaufman, Thad Reid, Lea Stukey, and Lori Gattis have over 100 years combined experience with the firm.

LKRSG has developed a strong reputation for excellence and innovation. Commitment to continual education, strict confidentiality, and high professional standards has contributed to that reputation. Although LKRSG provides many of the modern technologies and services of a large firm, we maintain our "small-firm" atmosphere, valuing the personal relationships we have with our clients.

The firm serves a diverse client base, and has developed significant expertise in agriculture, banking, restaurants, and the medical industry. Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest quality service in a friendly, personal atmosphere.
