Briggs & Veselka

Founded in 1973 by Johnny Veselka and Melton Briggs, Briggs & Veselka is now managed by Sheila Enriquez, one of 31 partners, and supported by over 300 employees. Briggs & Veselka Co. has office locations in Houston, The Woodlands, Austin, and El Campo.

Briggs & Veselka has grown to become the third largest accounting firm in Texas, Houston’s largest independent accounting firm, and one of the Top 100 accounting firms in the Nation, because clients—many of whom we have served for decades over generations of management—appreciate the Legacy of Loyalty we bring to each engagement.

Personalized Accounting Expertise

We provide audit, tax, and a variety of consulting services in addition to sophisticated services for companies with the most complex issues in today’s market. With a 1:7 partner to staff ratio, we are able to provide senior-level insights and involvement throughout our client engagements.

Unlike many other firms our size, Briggs & Veselka is organized into industry groups in which teams from audit, tax and consulting collaborate with each other and our clients to address compliance, regulatory, and business issues. As such, our industry teams bring a multi-disciplinary approach to each engagement, one that is appropriately sized for middle market clients.


Briggs and Veselka has been named one of the Best Places to Work by Houston Business Journal, made Houston Chronicle’s Top Workplaces list, and gained national recognition with our inclusion on Accounting Today magazine’s Top 100 list.

A Legacy of Loyalty

Our clients range from individual tax clients to closely-held businesses to medium-cap public companies, some of whom we have served for decades over multiple generations of ownership or leadership.

That tenure speaks to our ability to consistently deliver insights and value over time—part of our legacy.  Today, Briggs & Veselka serves some of Texas’ most iconic brands—many of which are market leaders in their respective areas.

Our clients tell us they have great confidence in our work, that we demonstrate an acute business sense beyond compliance issues, and that we are genuine and real in our interactions with each other and our clients. That’s how we engender a sense of loyalty.

The Backstory: Our Legacy of Loyalty Branding

The idea behind our branding approach is rooted in the firm’s values of Excellence, Dedication, and Compassion, and inspired by the WPA-era murals of John Rush found at the Hoover Dam. We believe this approach reinforces the concept of “Legacy of Loyalty” that was evident among American workers during and after the Great Depression, and continues with the entrepreneurs we serve today.
