Michael Klarin, CPA

Tax Advisory

Michael is a graduate of Villanova University, and began his career at a “Big Four” accounting firm, where he spent four years with KPMG, working in both Orange County, CA and Philadelphia, PA. Michael returned to California in 1995 and to join the family firm and it has been his home ever since, working alongside a team of other accounting professionals including his father, Dennis.  Michael has held leadership positions in the Orange County/Long Beach Chapter of CalCPA, including serving as chapter president. 

Michael's passion in his accounting practice is developing relationships with clients.  He believes that proper tax planning gives an opportunity to understand people as individuals, and not merely to study their numbers. He prides himself on his ability to formulate customized plans and then guide and support clients in the execution.

Michael's passions include college basketball (especially with Villanova regularly in the hunt for a national championship).  He particularly enjoys time and travel with his family.
