Expert Bio

My name is Michael Lodge, and I have been advising clients in the field of business formations, management accounting, business tax, succession planning, partner disputes, and compliance since 1984. With over three decades of experience, I have developed a deep understanding of the intricacies and challenges that businesses face in today's dynamic market. I do hold a CALIFORNIA REGISTERED TAX PREPARER license from CTEC California Tax Education Counsel. This license is renewed yearly with 20 hours of continuing education. This CTEC program has further enhanced my expertise in tax preparation and enables me to provide comprehensive and accurate tax advice to my clients. Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working at LODGE & CO. as the President and CEO. In this role, I have successfully led the company, overseeing its operations and strategic direction. Under my guidance, LODGE & CO. has achieved significant growth and success, becoming a trusted name in the industry. I have also owned a boutique real estate firm, a healthcare staffing firm, a tax and business advisory firm, a mediation firm, and a nursing review center in Asia. My experience counts. What sets me apart is my commitment to delivering exceptional results for my clients. I believe in building strong relationships based on trust and integrity, and I strive to provide personalized solutions tailored to each client's unique needs. My extensive experience and in-depth knowledge allow me to navigate complex business challenges with ease, ensuring that my clients receive the best possible advice and support. I am passionate about helping individual and businesses thrive and reach their full potential. Whether it's assisting with business formations, resolving partner disputes, or ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements, I am dedicated to providing top-notch services that drive success. I have written five books on business and mediation. The books are - "You Can Lead" / "Start Small - Grow Big" / Kids & Money, For Parents" / "Ethically Thinking, It's Not That Hard" / "Daily Strategy, Mediating Life and Business". All sold on Amazon. The experience that I have can help individuals and businesses with advisory services that can answer questions, be strategic in planning, and resolve conflicts and disputes within business.
