I am a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) and the founder of United Financial Planning Group. I provide financial planning, tax preparation, and wealth management services on a fee-only advisory basis. I bring over two decades of financial advisory experience to my practice. My professional career began in 1991 as a CPA for Price Waterhouse. There, I was assigned to the firms Technology Industry Group where I gained extensive knowledge working with start-up businesses helping take several companies public. I also worked as the Corporate Controller of a leading public company on Long Island. During this time, I gained experience in corporate finance, SEC reporting, taxation and investing. My practice began focused primarily on tax planning and small business consulting. By working closely with my clients investment advisors, I was also able to gain extensive investment knowledge which led me to realize the conflicts of interest prevalent in the financial services industry. It was due to this revelation that I began to incorporate fee-only financial planning and wealth advisory into my practice. In my opinion, this shift in focus created the perfect synergy between tax and personal financial planning. Throughout my decades in the industry, I've accumulated several designations including: Certified Public Accountant (CPA) CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER" (CFP®) Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) In addition to earning these designations, I am also an active member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the New York State Society of Certified Public Accountants (NYSSCPA), the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) and the Garrett Planning Network. Prior to entering the financial industry, I earned my BBA in Finance from Hofstra University and MBA in Accounting from St. John's University. In addition, I hold a Certificate of Financial Planning from Fordham University. I currently reside in Smithtown, NY with my wife and two children. I enjoy playing an active role in the community by devoting time to charitable organizations including Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island and St. Jude's Children's Hospital. In my free time, I enjoy triathlon, tennis, and family activities.

About United Financial Planning Group, LLC

Anyone can call themselves a financial planner. But any financial planning advice received from stockbrokers or insurance agents should be considered carefully. Do these agents have the best interest of your retirement savings at heart, or are they solely seeking commission? Not to mention, they may be experts in their field but that doesnt qualify these individuals to offer financial planning advice, especially when it comes to complex issues like your retirement planning. We are not swayed by commissions or sales incentives. Instead, we measure our success by the quality of life our clients experience throughout retirement. We achieve this by always putting the clients needs and goals first. When we took our fiduciary oath, we vowed to always act in good faith and with candor. This means well be proactive in disclosing any conflicts of interests that could impact our client, and we will not accept referral fees or compensation from outside entities based on product sales. Our decades of experience and commitment to the industry has led us to obtain several important industry designations. These include CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER" (CFP®), Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Personal Financial Specialist (PFS) and Enrolled Agent (EA).

I began my career as an advisor at Equitable. From there I was hired by AIG as an active advisor and VP of the Northeast. I was then given the opportunity to be the President of the AIG financial services company in Poland. Upon my return after my year abroad, I was made VP of the Sun American Broker-Dealer division of AIG nationally. I then was hired away by AXA/MONY to be a VP of the highest producing advisers in the company. About 7 years ago I decided to work full-time designing and implementing Financial Plans, and fulfilling the investment and insurance needs of my clients. It was the best decision of my career. I believe I am uniquely qualified to be your financial advisor due to the broad background I have in the industry. I survived the adversity of losing my father very young and being an only child, I know how hard it is for a single mother to work and raise a child. My father left us with no Life Insurance or financial planning. As happens in life not everything goes as planned. I made a bad choice of a partner and ended up paying a fine for something I had no involvement in. It taught me to trust only myself and do what is right for my clients not for myself or others. I am now solely an independent Planner, I value my client relationships as a major part of my life. I live in Manhattan with my wife Melissa and my daughter Lea who is a practicing DVM, with our Dogs. My hobby is sailing, I am also a licensed USCG Captain.

Special attention has been on the creation of departments with different areas of expertise. Areas such as planning for those with special needs, life insurance, group benefits, retirement planning, corporate benefits, minority owned businesses and an emphasis on educating the female market place.
Many of the advisors at Iron Birch are past or present board members of non-for-profit organizations, socially responsible and pay forward with both time and resources.

There arent many instances that send off a sense of accomplishment as to when it is the result of our hard work and teachings that allows one to retire with dignity, protect loved ones and represent those that cannot represent themselves, provide the ability to send children to college and when it's all over to simply get a "thank you". That is truly a rewarding feeling.
Finally, the partners and associates at Iron Birch Advisors® formed the bond we did and are here together because we are like family, we respect one another and enjoy each other's company. At the end of the day, we all have fun doing what we do.
It would be an honor to serve you, your family and your loved ones.
Iron Birch Advisors is a franchise of Ameriprise. We operate as a boutique practice with personalized care and attention. We attempt to meet with every client at least quarterly and a much larger in depth meeting, annually. Prior to becoming a client, several meetings are generally necessary to assess ones needs, appetite for risk and the goals of the individual and/or family.
