For more than 30 years, Ghirardo CPA has played an integral role in the lives of thousands of North Bay individuals and businesses. In 1990, Novato natives Jerry and Steve Ghirardo bought the CPA practice established by their father, Edward T. Ghirardo.

Today we are one of the premier accounting, audit, tax preparation and business consulting firms in Marin County.

One of the fundamental reasons for our success is the strength of our team. Our talented and multi-disciplinary team of professionals continues to grow. We are currently home to more than 25 full- and part-time employees, most of which are CPAs with advanced degrees, including MBAs and master’s degrees.

Additionally, the firm has a number of international team members fluent in several foreign languages, including Mandarin, Russian, Hebrew, Spanish, and Italian.

Our team members draw on their expertise, energy, creativity and enthusiasm to not only meet client expectations, but to exceed them. Every team member displays a caring attitude, technical competence, passionate commitment and truly values the long-term relationships we have built with our clients.

Integrity, a commitment to continuing technical expertise and an uncompromising approach to maintaining personal relationships with our clients is the foundation of our ethic, in both business and the community.
