About Us

They Call us the Experts

For over 30 years, Smith Dickson has been providing superior accounting, tax compliance, forensic accounting, and business and financial consulting services to businesses and their founders throughout Southern California and the nation. Our expertise ranges from traditional accounting and tax services, to providing advisory services at the corporate and individual level, to being highly esteemed experts in forensic and investigative accounting, as well as serving as expert witnesses in court.


What distinguishes us is that we’re not here to just talk numbers, we strive to be your partner through every step of your financial growth. We see ourselves as your strategic trusted partner for all of your business and financial needs. We provide the support needed to grow your business, enhance your profitability, save on taxes, and preserve wealth. We want to be your first call. We want to know your family. We want to work WITH you not for you, because truly understanding you and your business and having that personal connection is what helps you succeed.


Unlike when working with a national CPA firm, when you work with Smith Dickson, you will be matched with a partner-level CPA who will be your contact indefinitely. They will work with you to understand all there is to know about your business, lifestyle, and specific goals and circumstances.


Our driving force is your success! Drawing from a wealth of experience spanning over three decades, we have learned that providing traditional CPA tasks like taxation, accounting, forensic accounting, litigation support, and business consulting is merely a starting point. We know that true success comes when your company, employees, and families thrive as a result of us committing to the success of your business like it’s our own.
