J.D. Brashear

Tax Director, CPA

J.D. joined our firm in 2009 and is primarily involved in the firm’s tax and business valuation practices. J.D. helps his clients effectively maximize their benefits that are stipulated by the laws and regulations set forth by the particular governing authority.

As a combat veteran and former military officer, J.D. takes pride in serving others by leading from the front. One of his main guiding principles is the notion that change is imminent; it is how you react to the change that defines who you are.

J.D. resides in Fort Smith, Arkansas with his wife Lora. They have two children, Alydia and Asher. When he’s not at the office, J.D. enjoys the peacefulness of a good morning hunt in early November as well as spending time with his family.
