About Us

Bob Nelson, Esq.

Bob Nelson is licensed as both a certified public accountant (CPA) and as an attorney-at-law. While the fields of law and accounting are at first glance quite different, the fact is that there is much overlap between the two fields of study. This is where Bob Nelson is especially qualified. While a lawyer may not have a fine understanding of the numbers involved in estate planning, an accountant certainly would. Secondly, while an attorney may have taken courses on tax or estate law, this wouldn’t be enough to have a comprehensive knowledge of accounting. However, Bob Nelson does have that comprehensive knowledge of both fields, being a dually-licensed attorney-CPA.
