Who We Are
Edward J. Walsh was granted Certificate Number 376 by the Texas State Board of Public Accountancy on January 9, 1932, and soon launched Edward J. Walsh & Associates in his family's hometown of Galveston, Texas.
His son, Edward J. Walsh, Jr. (Ed), became a C.P.A. on January 17, 1960, Certificate Number 5055, after graduating from the University of Texas. He soon joined his father’s growing practice and over the years built it to meet the needs of many individuals and businesses by listening to and working for the benefit of thousands of clients. Many of his clients became close, long-lasting friends.
Edward was joined by his wife, Rose Marie, where they worked hand in hand every day for 35 years. In 1982, their son, Eddie, joined the practice, and in 1989, their second son, Kevin, followed. Ed and Rose Marie instilled in their sons the dedication and commitment needed to provide you with respectable and valued accounting services that you demand.
The legacy created, built and nurtured by Edward, Ed and Rose Marie continues in the third generation. Eddie and Kevin and their valued team offer services to meet a wide range of both corporate and personal needs. As a valued client of Edward J. Walsh & Associates, you’ll leave your accounting worries with us so you can focus on the things that matter most in your life.
