Our firm started as Thomas Burger & Associates, serving primarily fishermen and cranberry farmers throughout the coastal community of Westport, Washington. Tom Burger began the firm in 1978, and he was well known throughout the community for the generous time he committed to helping others.
As the firm grew, it was relocated to Aberdeen, Washington, where we began to specialize in accounting for professional service firms. When Tom Burger passed away, Bob Barene became the sole shareholder and continued Tom’s charitable legacy. Erin DenAdel, whos was born and raised in Grays Harbor, joined the firm in 2007. The firm was renamed Barene DenAdel in 2009 and continues the vision Tom Burger set for the business—to provide excellence to both clients and community.
We were recently voted Business of the Month by the Grays Harbor Chamber of Commerce for our community involvement. Our team of detail-oriented professionals values our ability to provide excellent accounting and tax services. Over the years, we’ve grown into a successful firm because we have passionate staff members who pride themselves in providing the highest quality service to our clients and our community.
We invite you to get to know our firm and our team of financial professionals who are personally invested in the success of our clients and community.
