About our firm

Safstrom & Company was founded in 1970 by William A. Safstrom (1920 – 2000) who formed his own firm after a twenty-five year career as a senior partner in the Seattle Certified Public Accounting firm of Ansell Johnson & Company. We continue to uphold the values on which our firm was founded: professionalism, integrity, honesty and objectivity.

Our financial experts are committed to providing close and personal attention to our clients and our firm’s leadership believes in investing time and resources in continuing professional education, state of the art technology, adherence to high ethical standards, and building strong relationships with our clients and peers within the industry.

We are proud to have served as trusted advisors to our clients for over 50 years. The quality of our work and our commitment to our clients has afforded us the opportunity to build long-term relationships with both our individual and business clients.

Each of our CPAs is licensed by the state of Washington and is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Washington Society of Certified Public Accountants.

We invite you to contact us to discuss your unique needs and to discuss how we can help you achieve your goals and secure your financial future.
