Arthur Gould Tashiera (April 20, 1877 – December 23, 1938) was a lawyer, one of the principals of McKee, Tashiera and Wahrhaftig. (NB: the name is frequently spelled Tasheira; not sure which is correct)

Tashiera graduated from the University of California in 1900, and studied law at Harvard. 1 After practicing law in San Francisco for short time, he went into partnership with Sam Bell McKee.

In 1905, he married Helen Garthwaite, daughter of W. W. Garthwaite.

In 1912, he was appointed as vice-president of the board of playground directors; Ethel Moore was the president. 3

Tashiera was on the board of directors of the Farmers and Merchants Savings Bank. The 1920 census lists their address as the Hotel Oakland, but he and Helen lived primarily at 215 La Salle Avenue in Piedmont.

In 1923, Tashiera was appointed to the board of bar examiners. 2
