This is Fred Ball for Zions Bank, speaking on business.
Sixty year ago, Lawrence Pinnock left his job with the Internal Revenue Service and started his own public accounting firm in Salt Lake City. His son, Roger, remembers the firm and says his father did everything by hand and used fountain pens to record entries in leather and metal binders. Today, the firm is Pinnock, Robbins, Posey & Richins, and it still practices under the same principles of honesty and integrity Lawrence established in 1944.
The six partners in the firm, Roger Pinnock, Ronald Robbins, David Posey, Roger Richins, Janis Kline and Jim Beaudoin, have more than 170 years of accounting experience combined and have been recognized by the accounting profession for their quality and professional services. In 1994, Roger Pinnock was recognized by the Utah Association of Certified Public Accountants as the Outstanding CPA of the Year, and in 2002, Roger Richins was selected as the Outstanding CPA in Public Practice.
Pinnock, Robbins, Posey & Richins specializes in working with businesses, individuals and families in achieving their financial objectives. Among other things, the firm concentrates on income tax planning and tax preparation; estate, gift and trust planning; personal financial planning, financial audits and other financial statement services; general business advisory services; and business valuations.
Janis Kline, the managing partner, says the firm sets itself apart from other accounting firms by providing personalized service, innovative approaches to financial situations and continued communication between the firm and its clients.
Aside from working at Pinnock, Robbins, Posey & Richins, the partners have experience in teaching classes and seminars in accounting, auditing and tax for professional and academic groups across the nation.
