Powell & Jones
Certified Public Accountants

About Our Firm

Powell & Jones was formed in 1983 as the result of Richard Powell withdrawing from the firm of Foreman, Kelly, Powell, and Ruff, a firm he co-founded in 1975.  The office is located in Lake City, Florida, and has a current full-time staffing of three professional certified public accountants, five accountants, and two paraprofessionals.  All of our professional positions work exclusively in the area of governmental and non-profit auditing and acounting. Powell & Jones is committed to operating with a quality foundation of unwavering ethics and quality results.

Our unique organization allows our audit professionals to work year round on governmental related audits and thus maximize their career experiences in this specialized area of accounting.  This organization and practice emphasis also allows them to take nearly all of their annually required forty hours of continuing education in the governmental and non-profit related fields.

Due to our firm specialization, we are commited to continuity of our staff.  We have had minimal staff turnover during the past six years, and have recently added an additional full-time accountant to our workforce.
