About Us

Since the 1970’s, the firm has focused on maintaining a commitment of quality service for our clients.

Our Firm:

Originating in the 1970’s, the founders of our firm were one of the first CPA firms in Orange County's Saddleback Valley.  Kenneth K. Inouye, CPA co-acquired the firm in 1979 and Doug Shively and Mary Longtin joined him as partners at the beginning of 1990.  In 2013 Jeff Klatt became partner as Mary retired.  The firm recently changed its name to Inouye, Shively & Klatt, CPA’s LLP to better reflect our current ownership.

Our Objectives -- And How We Achieve Them:

Our first objective is to be the best CPA firm in the areas we serve by helping our clients’ maximize returns and minimize taxes.  We achieve this objective by dedicating ourselves to these principles:

  • Produce work that is of the highest quality.

  • Provide timely service.

  • Take a personal interest in our clients.  Each client has one team member who is personally responsible for all of your work.

  • Provide a full range of services:  auditing, accounting, tax planning and preparation, and management consulting.

  • Always have sufficient capacity to accept additional clients or to provide additional services to existing clients.  Our team is well balanced to assure that all work is assigned at the appropriate level of ability.  Our team has diverse backgrounds to provide a wide range of expertise.
