Our History

Since 1971, KM&L, LLC has forged a reputation in Brazoria County for service, integrity, flexibility, and reliability. In 2013, we expanded our firm into Wharton County with the acquisition of a long standing El Campo firm. Our history is built on a tradition of service, technical expertise, and innovative thinking to meet the needs of a rapidly changing world. The experience and academic credentials of our partners and staff provide you with the expertise of larger firms, while our commitment to superior customer service offers a personal, one-on-one approach.
