About Smith Anglin

Over 50 years blazing accounting trails in Dallas.

Smith Anglin was founded by Dallas trendsetter Walter Smith and former Mobil Oil accountant Bobby Anglin in 1967. Always on the forefront of their field, Smith Anglin was one of the first CPA firms to move out of downtown Dallas and move north of the city in the 1960s. The firm became a tenant in the Meadows Building doing accounting for the Meadows family. Over five decades later, and Smith Anglin continues to draw on its accountancy roots to provide outstanding financial service to clients in the metro Dallas area.

Smith Anglin Accounting is a people business.

Accurate. Honest. Direct. Responsive. That’s how our clients describe their Smith Anglin Accounting team. We focus on client advocacy in order to be the most economically efficient partner we can be.
