J.D., CFP®, ChFC®, CLU®, CLTC® Champion Financial Strategies & Insurance Solutions
I was born in Israel to Russian parents seeking a life free of the Soviet Union. Two years later they came to America and I have lived in the New England area ever since.
After college and law school, I passed the NY and MA bar exams simultaneously in 2008 and became a lawyer later that year. I went on to practice law for five years, working in large scale corporate litigation, estate planning, and commercial collections.
However, I wasn't practicing the kind of law I wanted to and so, with the support of my wonderful wife Alison, I changed careers in 2013 to enter the world of financial services. Since then, I have run my own practice on the theory that if I build relationships, give honest and smart advice, and do what is right for my clients, then I would flourish right along with them. It's working so far!
I love what I do, helping couples like Alison and I navigate the world of investments*, insurance*, retirement*, and financial planning*.
There are few things that feel as meaningfully validating as seeing the anxiety and concern fade from clients' eyes when they have a financial plan in place for the future for them and their kids.
Some other stuff about me. I am a total sap who cried a *lot* during Avengers: Endgame. Though I dare any father of a then three year old little girl to remain dry-eyed during all the father-daughter moments in that movie! I am generally a science-fiction and fantasy geek, love to read, play computer games in my non-existent free time, and get really excited when I figure out new life hacks for stress and time management.
As the owner of a Virtual financial planning practice, I am really fortunate that I can work with like-minded people all across the country.** Here's to many more years to come!
