What is important to you?
At Weinstein Spira, we care about your answer to this question beyond its financial aspect. As an advisor to some of the most successful business owners in Greater Houston, we are dedicated to the success of the community. This fuels our involvement in and support of local organizations.

From “Pink Out Day” to holiday crafting, firm members participate in efforts to support and create awareness around organizations throughout Greater Houston. We also sponsor some of the most visible events in the community. But that’s not why we do it. We’re just happy to support causes close to the hearts of clients and firm members.
