Before we get into the benefits of hiring an attorney who is also a CPA, let’s discuss the main difference between the two. While an attorney specializes in the laws surrounding business transactions, taxes and estate planning, CPAs specialize in the financial outcomes of each.
Whether you are creating or updating an estate plan, or addressing tax issues as an individual or a business owner, it is often necessary to work with both a certified public accountant (CPA) as well as a lawyer.
You have the CPA who works to meet all of your financial accounting needs, and your lawyer who drafts all of your requisite legal documents. However, it can be very difficult to find a CPA and an attorney who work well together.
Sometimes the two professionals disagree on strategy, while other times they simply have a difficult time communicating.
