Helping you deal with all things pawn.
Dave Griffiths founded The Consultants in 2012. Upon the sale of one of his many business ventures, and being entrepreneurial at heart, he realized there was a market for the experience he had developed over the last 32 years in business.
Preferring to show up in person and build relationships, he strives to earn business the old-fashioned way. A low hourly rate and annual contracts that encourage unlimited phone calls and e-mails are just two of the reasons to use the services he provides.
Since most precious metals dealers are unaware of the federal guidelines they must follow, it is Dave’s job to educate them and get them in compliance before the IRS comes knocking. With 100+ clients spread along the West Coast from Alaska to Southern California, he is able to help navigate through the local, state and federal regulations many find burdensome and confusing.
Whether you need help with local law enforcement and search and seizure issues, ATF audit assistance, Quickbooks set-up and training, analysis of your business model and best practices, are in need of getting all of your compliance in order, have trouble understanding the Military Lending Act, or just want someone to bounce ideas off of, then look no further.
Since June of 1996, he has owned two pawnshops in CA and OR, spent 15 years on the board of the Oregon Pawnbrokers Assn. as the secretary/treasurer, and is involved in helping pass legislation at the state level. He regularly advises both the Oregon and Washington Pawnbrokers Associations when not marketing for his FrameDoctors Eyeglass Repair stores in Southern California which he founded in 2002. He has also written several articles for the National Pawnbroker magazine at their request.
Married to Robin since 1987, they have one adult son and live in Beaverton, OR. You can reach Dave at 503-970-7739 or firstname.lastname@example.org
