About LvHJ

Lindquist, von Husen & Joyce LLP is a highly respected CPA and advisory firm within the national affordable housing community, with a special focus on not-for-profit organizations, complex affordable housing entities, California regional centers and closely held businesses and developers. LvHJ emphasizes caring guidance and specialized education for executive and finance leaders, their staff, boards and investors. We serve closely held businesses, individuals and families with complex financial and tax planning needs at a national and international scale. 

Northern California CPAs with International Reach

Starting in 1935, a young entrepreneur, Rudy Lindquist, opened an office in the heart of San Francisco’s financial district, and he was soon joined by fellow CPAs Fred von Husen and Jack Joyce. Together they built a practice and reputation for high standards and distinguished client service that we are proud of and committed to today. Our practice has evolved to include highly skilled professionals from top firms and multiple countries. They bring deep context to today’s growth needs and opportunities for businesses and not-for-profits.
