Shea Labagh Dobberstein (SLD) is one of the most well-respected CPA firms serving Walnut Creek and the San Francisco Bay Area. With approximately 100 employees staffing three Bay Area offices, SLD offers the advantages of both a large and small CPA firm. We provide the global reach, deep expertise, specialized resources, and other benefits of a large firm. This is exemplified by our membership in DFK International, a global association of accounting firms.
America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms
However, we are also a small enough CPA firm to give clients individualized, responsive service. Constant communication between practice areas and a high employee-to-client ratio provide you with both technical expertise and focused attention. Our unique approach has consistently earned honors, including Forbes Magazine naming us to its 2020 list of “America’s Top Recommended Tax & Accounting Firms.” INSIDE Public Accounting has also called us a “Top 200 Firm” and awarded us “Best of the Best Firm” in 2020.
For more than 75 years, we have provided a full range of auditing, tax, and accounting services, and have built trusted relationships with private companies in Northern California. The industries we serve include real estate, manufacturing, construction, logistics, distribution and wholesale, food and beverage, and professional services. We also have extensive experience working with nonprofits and high net worth individuals. Many of our certified public accountants, such as Ronald “Ron” K. Simonian, have decades of experience. Ron has been with SLD for nearly 30 years. He is an expert on strategic business and tax consulting, individual tax planning, merger and acquisition consulting, and accounting and auditing. Principals and staff like Ron are one of the reasons we are able to maintain such a high level of client satisfaction. Eugene Lupario, President of Silicon Valley Staffing Group, had this to say about our firm:
“We have been working with SLD for the past 15+ years. They have consistently been able to provide exceptional tax advice and offer guidance in setting up new companies for us. In addition, SLD has offered solid financial reviews and has been able to be there whenever needed.”
Since our founding more than 75 years ago, we have helped great clients like SVS Group succeed with independent, proactive accounting advice. For a CPA firm in Walnut Creek, contact Shea Labagh Dobberstein.
