There is quite a bit of crossover from tax to estate planning, so this is a top-of-mind subject, especially in our ag-focused region."  The Stanislaus Estate Planning Counsel was formed to share best practices for professionals involved in estate planning. Founder, Partner and CPA Clive Grimbleby attended the meeting and expressed that "Jeff represented the firm well, while demonstrating his deep expertise in completing IC-DISCs here locally."

Featured Staff

Jeff became a principal of the firm in 2010. His specialty is tax, and he leads the firm's agribusiness industry team.

Jeff is a Modesto native, and grew up in a local farming family. He has an MBA and a Masters in Taxation degree, and is a CPA. Jeff enjoys “being able to explain a concept or communicate information that helps a client, and being able to learn from the experience of clients who are very successful at what they do.”

When he’s not helping clients, Jeff's focus is on spending time with his wife and three daughters. If it’s June, he’s outdoors—probably gardening, grilling, or hiking in the High Sierras. In October, you’ll find him spending time with family and still spending time outside if the weather is nice. But in January … where else would he be but in the office? “It’s tax season!”

Jeff’s favorite number is 2000. “For the year that I got married, and also started my first public accounting job.”
