Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD) is the firm to choose when you are searching for an accountant in Walnut Creek. We are one of the most well-respected and longest-standing accounting firms in the Bay Area, offering a full range of auditing, tax, and accounting services. Since our founding in 1944, we have amassed extensive experience working with high net worth individuals and built trusted relationships with private companies in many industries, such as real estate, manufacturing, construction, logistics, distribution and wholesale, food and beverage, and professional services. The firm has earned accolades, including being named to Forbes Magazine’s 2020 list of “America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms” and INSIDE Public Accounting’s 2020 “Best of the Best Firm” and “Top 200” lists.
America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms
With approximately 100 employees across three Bay Area offices, we offer the benefits of both a large and small firm. We have the deep expertise and specialized resources of a large firm, perhaps best exemplified by our membership in DFK International, an association of worldwide accounting firms. We are also small enough, though, to deliver responsive, proactive service. The practice areas within SLD are in constant communication to provide you with the coordinated, collaborative expertise your business needs to achieve its goals.
One of the cornerstones of our firm is the understanding that SLD principals and staff are the solid foundation on which exceptional accounting services are built. Linda Spain de Bruin, for example, has nearly thirty years of experience as an accomplished CFO and financial and operational manager in the private and nonprofit sector, and is our COR2E Accounting Solutions practice principal. She and her team provide end-to-end accounting services. It is the senior-level attention that principals such as Linda provide that empower great clients to succeed.
