Santerre & Vande Krol was established by Scott R. Santerre and Douglas R. Vande Krol in 1982; and our professional staff has over 90 years of combined experience in business, tax, estate and retirement planning, and in business and real estate transactions.
The Firm has been located in Scottsdale, Arizona for 30 years; and our practice has grown along with the Scottsdale area. With the advancements in technology and the mobility of clients, our practice is no longer limited to a specific geographic area. While the majority of our clients are from Scottsdale and the greater Phoenix area, because of our specialization in specific areas of law, we increasingly provide legal services to clients throughout Arizona and elsewhere.
As with many professions, the trend in legal services has been towards specialization; and our Firm has consciously limited the professional services which we offer to our clients. Both Scott R. Santerre and Douglas R. Vande Krol are tax specialists certified by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization; and all members of our professional team work in specific areas of the practice in which they are knowledgeable. By limiting the scope of legal services to those matters in which our Firm is most knowledgeable and experienced, we are able to provide a higher quality of professional service to our clients in a more efficient and effective manner. When a client’s legal needs involve matters outside of those areas in which our Firm practices, we will assist that client in locating other professionals who are best qualified to meet those needs.
Our clients range from individuals, sole proprietors and professional corporations to multinational corporations. The majority of our new clients are referred to our Firm by our existing clients and by other professionals; but our clients are retained because of the professional services which we provide and the professional relationships that develop between the clients and the staff and employees of Santerre & Vande Krol. It is this relationship that allows our clients to know that they are not just a client number or file, but that they are individuals with specific needs and concerns.
We would encourage you to contact us if you have questions concerning our Firm and its services.
