Sam’s Story

Sam was born to Holocaust survivors on February 10, 1949 in a displaced persons camp in Germany. Sam and his family found their way to Brooklyn, New York where Sam was raised. Before enrolling in Queens College of the City University of New York at the age of 16, Sam was on the debate team and worked at his father’s grocery in Brooklyn. Later, Sam became a United States Marine – proudly serving his country.

On his 24th birthday, after a few years working with Donald E. Talbot, one of his accounting professors, Sam set up his own accounting practice. About a year later the practice merged into a small CPA firm in Maplewood, New Jersey. The firm continued to blossom and prosper and in 1990 Sam created the forensic accounting firm of Rosenfarb & Co, which merged again in 1999 to form RosenfarbWinters, LLC. RosenfarbWinters, LLC became the preeminent forensic accounting practice in the State of New Jersey. In 2008, having grown to a firm of 14 partners with 75 team members, RosenfarbWinters merged with a top 20 CPA firm and Sam became the Partner-In-Charge of Litigation, Investigation, and Valuation services.

During late 2011 Sam left the large firm environment to return once again to a forensic accounting practice. Rosenfarb LLC was formed to embody Sam’s commitment to value and to celebrate the litany of skills, insights, abilities, knowledge, and business acumen of the firm’s many team members.

Throughout more than 40 years of business and accounting experience, and being involved in more than 1,000 cases, Sam’s commitment to providing clients with significant value has never wavered. Value is only possible if smart, dedicated professionals consistently employ an effective process to generate outstanding work product. This is the mantra of Rosenfarb LLC. We are committed to provide value to our clients. Value matters – to us and to our clients.
