Jeremiah (Jerry) Murphy, CPA - President


Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting from the University of Maryland, 1968.  


My initial certification as a certified public accountant was received in 1974 from the state of New Jersey. In 1976 I received my current certification from the state of California. My certificate is #24079R.


  • 1969 - 1971: US Army's Military Intelligence Division as a Special Agent.
  • 1971 - 1976: Staff accountant with DeLeon, Murphy, DeMichael & Company; a local CPA firm in Northern New Jersey.
  • 1976 - current: Self-employed as a certified public accountant with a general public practice. 


1971 - 1976: I was a staff account and had client responsibilities from the outset of my employment. I was expected to provide all of the bookkeeping, payroll and income tax needs of small businesses under my control. I also assisted partners with larger clients as part of my regular work.

1976 - 2018: My practice includes servicing the business, not-for-profit and governmental communities with accounting, auditing and tax compliance services. I also provide a variety of consulting services to these clients.

Individual and estate tax compliance and planning were also a significant part of my practice.

I am married to the former Lorraine Spengler (September 1971) and together we have three children, all now grown and on their own. Over the years, I have assisted the local high school as a part-time coach for the track team (Sprinters and middle-distance runners) and the girls soccer program as an assistant coach. I have also been active in various local non-profit organizations such as the local Kiwanis Club of Fort Bragg and The Sports Foundation.
