Darlene N. Haddad, CPA


Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

Darlene N. Haddad joined Topel Forman in 1994 after earning her degree in commerce at  DePaul University. An accomplished CPA with wide-ranging expertise in the areas of real estate, partnerships and unions, she rose through the ranks to become our first woman partner.

Darlene provides tax planning and compliance services for partnerships, corporations and high net worth individuals with a specialty in real estate. She also offers accounting and    auditing services for employee unions and benefit plans.

She also volunteers her time and expertise as financial secretary of her parish, St. George Antiochian Orthodox Church. Outside of the office, Darlene loves to read and golf (...now that she has a hole in one!). She is also an enthusiastic traveler who recalls her favorite vacation as a Baltic cruise that took her to six countries – Denmark, Germany, Estonia, Russia, Finland and Sweden.
