Scott Brillhart


Scott began his career as an intern with Peter M. Rub, CPA in 2005. Upon graduating from DePaul University in 2006, he joined the firm full-time.

In the past ten years, his work with clients has exposed him to virtually all areas of taxation and accounting. Working for a small firm has enabled Scott to become an expert in many fields, not just a specialized area. With a deep knowledge and understanding of the tax code and by keeping current with the rapidly changing financial climate, Scott helps clients navigate complex tax and financial issues and plan for a solid future.

In 2015, Scott and Pete formed Rub & Brillhart, LLC with an objective to expand the practice and to continue the highly specialized services Pete has been providing for over 30 years.
