About Us

Our Firm

Originally operating under the name of CBJ Accounting Solutions since 1996, Gina A. Brown has been providing quality, personalized financial guidance to local businesses mostly in Sonoma, Marin, Nevada and Placer counties. Although technology allows many industries like accounting and financial services not to be limited to a specific geographic radius, we like to meet our clients in person as many times as we feel it is necessary in order for us to get a clear knowledge about them, so we can better serve them.

Gina’s expertise ranges from tax management, accounting software set-up and training as well as accounting, bookkeeping and capital budgeting. Additionally, we also provide outsourcing and placement of accounting and bookkeeping personnel. We take pride in not only providing you with knowledgeable, high work ethic, conscious people, but also someone who blends with your company’s culture and vision.

By combining Gina’s expertise and the team mentality of her staff and associates, we assure that every client receives the close analysis and attention they deserve. Our dedication to high standards, hiring of seasoned tax professionals, and work ethic is the reason why our client base returns year after year.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help clients maintain financial viability in the present, while taking a proactive approach to achieve their future goals. This requires open communication to reach an understanding of our clients’ needs through sound analysis and sometimes some research about their industry and its related standards. Similarly, we pride ourselves in being able to communicate complex tax and financial concepts in a manner that the lay person can understand and by default feel empowered about making sound financial decisions.
