Orange County Accounting Services

Founded 30 years ago, our Orange County CPA firm formed out of the strategic vision of founder and accountant, Gary Capata. With the spirit of service at the forefront, Gary set out as a sole practitioner to build his CPA firm while also pouring into his community as a public servant. The addition of business partner, Kevin Cloward, whose strong work ethic and affinity toward relationship building mirror those of Gary’s, has resulted in numerous milestones for the firm. Before long, Gary and Kevin openly welcomed Sal Kureh as their partner. Sal’s background and expertise in accounting, audit and business advisor services elevated CAPATA into a full-service accounting firm.
