About Barry

I have been an accountant for over 25 years and offer expert tax and financial advice to hundreds of high income earners, attorneys, doctors and real estate investors. In addition to my expertise, I pride myself on delivering affordable services in a timely manner with a personal touch.

My Story

I grew up in Brooklyn, New York and worked in the family business – a successful Butcher Store. My father taught me how to succeed in a small business. He believed you should work very hard, be fair, and smile. My father believed that "people want to do business with likeable people". I agree.

I started my CPA firm in 1995. I made the decision, early on, to keep my firm a one-person firm so that my clients would only deal with one person and receive highly personal service. I treat my clients as if they were my family. Many of my clients have told me numerous times that the reason they like dealing with me is because I pick up the phone when they call me, I respond to emails, and texts, quickly and, most of all, they have peace of mind. I am proud of my reputation – “generally, my clients do not get audited by the IRS or FTB.” I am proud to serve successful individuals and small businesses in San Diego, California. I still follow my father’s advice – work very hard, be fair and smile. Happiness to me is - helping a small business and individual make smart tax and financial decisions.
