Porter & Lasiewicz
Gary Porter initially started working with homeowners associations in 1976 after leaving an international CPA firm and joining, and later becoming a partner in, a local CPA firm in Ventura, California. Over the years, his CPA practice has gone through several affiliations, but has ultimately resulted in the firm of Porter & Lasiewicz CPAs. The firm is recognized nationwide for its specialty practice in homeowners’ associations (HOA). Our HOA practice represents several hundred associations. Our significant concentration within a single industry has allowed us to accumulate a considerable body of knowledge. Our proven technical expertise has given the firm national recognition.
Gary Porter CPA has more than 40 years of HOA auditing and consulting experience, serving associations since 1976. Our team of experienced professionals is ready to serve you, and we offer a range of services that is unique in the industry. There is only one firm that can claim that we "wrote the book" on associations. Gary Porter is the primary co-author of PPC's (Practitioners Publishing Company) Guide to Homeowners Associations and Other Common Interest Realty Associations, and Homeowners Association Tax Library. Cheryl Lasiewicz is also a contributing author to these Guides. Mr. Porter was the editor of CAI's "The Ledger Quarterly" for its entire 15-year production run, and has also authored more than 300 technical articles on various association matters.
Our staff is stable, so our clients won't be stuck having to "break in" and "train" new staff members from the CPA firm every year. You get the benefit of the same auditors back year after year. We also make sure that we have direct partner involvement on every audit or review engagement. By stripping away the administrative layers in the CPA firm, we become more efficient, and you receive the direct benefit of very experienced auditors.
Members of the firm have passed nine AICPA peer reviews, receiving unmodified reports on each review.
The firm offers financial statement, tax, and consulting services to associations nationwide. In addition, the firm is regularly sought out by other CPA firms nationwide when they need help with HOA issues. Mr. Porter has provided consulting services to more than 500 CPA firms over the years.
