Who We Are at
Griffin & Furman, LLC
Stephen Griffin, Managing Partner, began his career in public accounting in 1992. In his early years, he and Robert Furman, now a partner in the firm, worked at a certified public accounting firm in New Orleans, Louisiana. In September of 2000, after his son received an autism diagnosis, Mr. Griffin began his practice.
Not long after the firm was founded, Mr. Griffin and a contract employee discovered fraud at a Credit Union in New Orleans. The Board of Directors at the Credit Union was obligated to fire the Credit Union’s entire accounting department. The Credit Union took advantage of Mr. Griffin’s expertise and requested that he staff the new department—and thus began the firm of Griffin & Company. LLC.
Mr. Furman joined as a partner in 2001 and the firm evolved into Griffin & Furman, LLC.
Dedicated Certified Public Accounting Team
The firm’s dedication to its clients was evident following Hurricane Katrina in August 2005. Days after the hurricane struck New Orleans, the Board President of that same Credit Union in New Orleans called Mr. Griffin and Mr. Furman and asked them to return to the city and obtain a backup tape from the Credit Union. Management had evacuated with the wrong backup tape. And so they did. Mr. Griffin and Mr. Furman entered New Orleans via boat with an armed escort to reach the Credit Union.
That same dedication to their clients remains today, demonstrated by the partners and staff of the firm. Please allow us the opportunity to exceed your expectations.
