Wathen, DeShong, and Juncker, LLP (WDJ) has merged with McClelland, Samuel, Fehnel, and Busch, LLP (MSFB)

Wathen, DeShong, and Juncker, LLP (WDJ) is excited to announce that we have merged with McClelland, Samuel, Fehnel, and Busch, LLP (MSFB) effective January 1, 2023. We believe the combination of our experienced teams will provide value for clients and allow us to continue to serve our clients’ accounting, tax, auditing, and business consulting needs at the highest level.

Wathen, DeShong, and Juncker, LLP was formed in 1968, and in 2022, was designated one of the top 500 accounting firms in the country. WDJ is one of the fastest growing and innovative CPA and advisory firms in Southeast Texas, servicing clients in over 30 states and 8 countries. In addition to providing accounting, auditing, tax, advisory, and client accounting services, the firm operates WDJPay, a payroll service provider. WDJ has built a strong reputation as a leading firm within our community by providing a comprehensive array of professional services and investing in its employees, community, and clients.

For decades, McClelland, Samuel, Fehnel, and Busch, LLP has demonstrated their dedication to their clients, employees, and the community.

Together, WDJ is now 53 members strong with 8 partners and over 30 professionals. It is one of the largest firms between Houston and Lake Charles. “WDJ’s story of success is unparalleled in the Southeast Texas area – in almost 55 years we have grown from a small local firm in Beaumont, Texas, to a top 500 accounting and consulting firm in the country. MSFB lived these same principles which have been a big driver in their own firm’s success. From the time we first met it was apparent that they were a cultural and strategic fit, and that together we would make great things happen,” stated Chip Majors, managing partner of WDJ.

With the combination of our firms, we have added a new client accounting services department, expanded our IT department, and added experienced professionals to both our audit team and our tax team.
