Martinez & Shanken, PLLC is located in the Chandler/Gilbert area southeast of Phoenix, providing expertise in many areas of accounting, bookkeeping, consulting, outsourcing and business services.
Deborah Gilreath Martinez and Earl B. Shanken first met in 1983 while working in public accounting. They went their separate ways and operated their own professional practices until 1994. At that time they moved to the same location and began sharing rent and other business expenses
Based on a shared vision of providing excellent service to small business, they formed Martinez & Shanken, PLLC in 1999. The firm has grown from a staff of three to a staff of fifteen. Our focus has been to develop programs for clients using technology to streamline processes and to offer the ability to provide complete outsourcing of business financial functions.
Special divisions have been added to meet specific needs. The Tax Navigator division was added in 2017 to meet the needs of individuals and business owners who did not need year-round accounting services. The Tax Defender division was added in 2018 to meet the special needs of taxpayers under audit by taxing authorities or who owe taxes which they are unable to pay.
