Biography:

Svetlana Como graduated from the University of South Alabama Cum Laude in 2012. She completed all four sections of the CPA exam within the first year. Before working as an attorney, she gained over ten years of experience in public accounting, providing tax compliance and business valuation services to individuals and businesses in various industries.

The BP oil spill in 2010 increased the demand for valuation services, cultivating her interest in the business valuation field. As a result, Ms. Como obtained her ABV (accredited in business valuations) license in 2016.

Always striving to explore new horizons and add value to the services she can provide her clients, she then decided to attend law school. As a hard worker, Ms. Como went through four years of DU Sturm College of Law’s night program while remaining employed full-time as a CPA.

Her extensive financial experience helps her to advise clients from a legal and economic standpoint, allowing them to structure transactions in the most beneficial way possible.

When she’s not busy assisting legal clients, you’ll find Svetlana pursuing her other interests, including ballroom dancing (Argentine Tango), riding a motorcycle, spending time with her dog, a Doberman named Vader, as well as enjoying all that Colorado has to offer. She is also fluent in the Russian language.
