In 1962 William Loughrin Sr. moved to Washington from Montana in search of a better life for his family. 10 years later, after working as an accountant in Seattle, he built a complex on a small plot of land in Edmonds that would become the home of his new accounting business, Loughrin & Company CPAs.
By 1990 his son, William Loughrin Jr., had grown into a fine young accountant and took over the family business, which he has owned and operated ever since. While the employees have changed over the years the genuine warm family feeling of Loughrin & Company has forever remained remained the same.
Today, Loughrin & Co. serves clients across the globe while still maintaining a friendly neighborhood environment. It offers an array of quality, person to person services custom tailored to the unique circumstances of each of its clients.
