About Bill Lentini
“I have had the honor and pleasure of working with Bill Lentini for nearly fifteen years, as a colleague, then client, and ultimately as part his wonderful firm. I met Bill in 1996 at a law firm in San Francisco where he trained me diligently in law office trust accounting and bookkeeping. He was patient at teaching me the intricacies of accounting without ever being condescending. Unlike many accountants, Bill has exceptional communication skills and explains difficult tax concepts in an approachable way.
In 2005 I had recently returned to the San Francisco Bay Area after a brief stint in Phoenix. Bill offered me a position that allowed me to use my skills in HR consulting, operations management, and investments to provide comprehensive service to our clients. Bill was supportive during my tenure with him and encouraged me while I completed my Master’s Degree in Business.
When I joined his well-established San Francisco accounting firm, Bill was already a local personality, hosting his tax talk show on the Green 960, in addition to being owner and manager of WEL Enterprise, a firm with over 1,000 clients. Bill employed his best quality – his warm and winning personality – to keep his clients engaged. Bill used his sharp business acumen to retain and attract clients through hosting bi-monthly evening workshops on special tax issues affecting the majority of his client base and utilized multimedia, such as radio and the internet, to take the fear out of finances for his clients.
Professionally Bill is well-versed not only in tax accounting, but business management, corporations and personal investments, which makes him a one-stop shop for all financial needs. Personally, Bill is a wonderful mentor, friend and employer. Bill can take a frazzled, nervous client and within an hour’s time would be able to put the client at ease and provide solutions to whatever financial issue they were having. His office was always a warm, colorful and inviting second home to me and to his clients. During my tenure at WEL, he consistently solicited opinions from his staff and allowed them to thrive under his tutelage.
I strongly recommend Bill and am envious that he has taken his talents to the Mid-West. We miss him here in the Bay Area!”

About Bill Lentini
“I worked with Bill Lentini for several tax seasons when my accountants in Boston failed to do their job and also mismanaged an audit that had been started by the IRS. Because of my former accountants, the IRS had closed my case (according to them I lost) submitted me to collections agencies (because, again, my former accountant failed to file two consecutive years of tax returns because of the audit) and had submitted notices that my wages and property were to have liens placed on them or garnished.
In other words, it could not have gotten much worse by the time I hired Bill.
It was not an easy process, but with Bill’s dedication, persistence, and personable ethics he was able to:
- Reopen my case with the IRS
- Advise me on how to remove the collections and lien threats
- Satisfactorily execute the audit
- File several years of tax returns simultaneously
The final results included:
- My audit was processed and reversed, the IRS returned my money with interest!
- My taxes were brought up to date, and I even got a return from one of the years that hadn’t been filed!
- Keep me happy and sane throughout the process.
Bill Lentini helped navigate me through what had been one of the most stressful events I have ever experienced, and I can say, with full confidence, that I may have been financially ruined had it not been for him. I recommend him without reservation.
Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, High Integrity”
