The New Orleans‐headquartered public accounting firm of Duplantier, Hrapmann, Hogan & Maher,
L.L.P. CPAs (Duplantier) is pleased to announce the purchase of the following practices, effective
November 1, 2015:

  • DiGiovanni & Associates, a Slidell, Louisiana accounting practice
  • Francis I. Bourque, Jr., Certified Public Accountant, a Gretna, Louisiana accounting practice

The purchase of these practices will greatly expand Duplantier’s already established presence in the
Metropolitan New Orleans area. Both owners, Joseph DiGiovanni and Frank I. Bourque, Jr., will remain
with the Duplantier firm and will continue to provide the excellent service their clients have come to

Duplantier’s existing Slidell clients will continue to be served in the Camellia City, but now through the
previous DiGiovanni location at 1290 Seventh Street in Slidell. The current Duplantier location in Slidell,
at 1670 Old Spanish Trail, will close.

The Bourque practice will move to the New Orleans office of Duplantier at 1615 Poydras Street, Suite

Over the last 22 months, the Duplantier firm has also purchased four other local accounting practices:

  • James P. Friedman, CPA (APC)
  • Charles F. Hirling, Jr., CPA
  • John P. Cavaroc, CPA
  • Richard P. Delcambre, CPA

These four practices have been moved to Duplantier’s existing New Orleans office located at 1615
Poydras Street, Suite 2100. Friedman, Hirling, Cavaroc, and Delcambre are currently employed by
Duplantier in the practice.

Duplantier welcomes all six of these outstanding professionals and their staffs to our firm.
