nathan@hlgcpa.com - 510-652-1000 ext. 361

Nathan Diaz works with individuals, small and medium-sized businesses, partnerships and tax-exempt organizations to solve the puzzles in their financial situations. He assists clients in implementing pro-active tax approaches and pulls from his audit experience to ensure all numbers are solid and compliance responsibilities are fulfilled. It’s a great feeling for Nathan when the final adjustment is made and all the numbers fall into place, helping his clients progress toward their goals. 
 
As a native Texan who grew up on a ranch near El Paso, Nathan knows a thing or two about riding – both horses and ATVs. (And being a cool kid, naturally, he can also play the bass guitar.) Always good with numbers, he discovered his love of accounting in the traditional manner – accidentally, while pursuing a girl. His wife Lucy, then his girlfriend, was in the Future Business Leaders of America club at their high school. When Nathan’s teacher encouraged him to join the organization as well, he jumped at the chance to spend more time with Lucy, which led to rewarding and lasting relationships with both the girl and the profession.
 
Nathan went on to earn a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting as well as a Master of Accountancy from the University of Texas at El Paso. Now living in Richmond, CA, Nathan and Lucy have two dogs and a 16-year-old cat that has been with Nathan ever since he was in high school. He enjoys movies, books, video games and going to the park with Lucy and the dogs.
