Cliff credit’s his loving Dad for his long-standing career in finance. When he graduated from high school, he asked his dad whether he should pursue accounting or take a chance on something more daring. His dad’s southern-drawl Mississippian response? “Yes. Because you will always have a job.” Sage wisdom indeed!
Cliff comes to us after creating and running a successful CPA practice in La Quinta. With over 30 years of experience, Cliff’s knowledge in entertainment, manufacturing, high-tech and professional service businesses make him a true asset to the barton CPA team. His dry Mississippi wit isn’t bad either, y’all! He is highly-proficient in taxation – providing services from accounting and auditing to written tax opinions.
If you are looking for Cliff on the weekends, you will find him happily in front of the television, watching football and golf, with an occasional handful of peanut M&M’s. And – after thoroughly enjoying his steady career-of-choice for 50+ years – realizing his father was 100% correct.
