East Brunswick, N.J. (March 12, 2004) -- Accounting and consulting firm Mendlowitz Weitsen LLP, based here, has expanded its New Jersey presence with the merger of Morganville-based Finkelstein, Gomer & Weiner into its fold.

The deal adds revenue of $400,000, one office and four employees to the $1.8 million firm, giving it a total of three offices, three partners and 15 employees. FG&W partners Michael Finklestein and Robert Gomer will serve the firm in a consulting capacity. The firm's third principal, David Weiner, left to become chief financial officer at one of the firm’s clients.

Managing partner Ed Mendolowitz said the merger also gives Mendlowitz Weitsen expertise and clients in mortgage banking and small business investment corporations, areas in which FG&W specialized.

MW specializes in accounting for closely held companies, SEC work, business valuations and state-mandated peer reviews of CPA firms.

"This mergers adds industry expertise we didn't have and gives us entrée to clients that we feel would be good referrers of other business," Mendlowitz said.
