The CPA’s at James Moore & Co. (JM&Co) are knowledgeable, responsive and a pleasure to work with. JM&Co presented our company with timely financial audits and tax returns for four years. When we were acquired by GlaxoSmithKline, GSK conducted a thorough due diligence on our company. GSK’s confidence in JM&Co.’s abilities was reflected in the fact they agreed JM&Co. should complete the final tax return for our corporation. Our venture capital investors, management and GSK were impressed with JMCo.

I first worked with James Moore at another university. When I took my current position with San Jose State, I saw that our athletic department used a national accounting firm—at which time I said that we need to hire James Moore instead… We trust the expertise they bring to the table, and their service is top notch.

About Our Founder

James F. “Jim” Moore was born in 1925. He received a Master of Business Administration from Western Kentucky University in 1947 and a Master of Economics from Tulane University in 1948. He was a professor at the University of Florida before founding our firm in 1964.

Diagnosed with muscular dystrophy at the age of 14, Jim spent much of his life in his wheelchair. Yet he faced each day with a combination of tenacity, gratitude and grace. He preferred using the word “opportunity” instead of “obstacle.” He was seldom without a smile and always had a kind and encouraging word for others.

Jim was active in both the accounting profession and the surrounding communities, serving on the boards of several organizations. After his retirement in 1983, he continued to practice as a CPA and business advisor until his passing in 1995. His legacy is not only as founder of James Moore & Co., but also as one who served his profession well and genuinely cared about helping others.
