About me


“I think of myself as a problem solver. With almost 30 years of experience advising people in tax, business and estate matters, I’d like to think I’ve seen almost everything. I draw on that experience in counseling my clients and helping them develop creative solutions to even the most difficult problems . . .”

“. . . Finding a satisfactory solution is certainly rewarding, but for me, what’s most rewarding is knowing that I have helped to add a measure of peace and order to someone’s life.”

    Larry is a great attorney. I have referred several clients to him for business and tax matters and have received glowing reports from each of those clients. I am also Larry's client, and he saved me $50,000 on taxes this past year.

    Besides being a really great guy Larry helped us undo some damage done by a previous accountant and bookkeeper. Larry also helped me develop some simple tax strategies that have already saved me and will likely save me more than $50,000 per year. Yes you read that, right per year. Needless to say because of all of this I have referred several clients to Larry's firm and everyone has been very thankful to me for the introduction. One of the things that gives me a lot of comfort when referring business to Larry's firm, is that it is an actual business and not just brilliant Larry by himself in a corner. He has built a great team around him and even when he is away I know that I am being taken care of. Even when he is away I know I can refer clients to his firm because his business will take care of them it's not just all about Larry.
