LTC 1492 (Retired)
Larry O’Leary is the heart and soul of our firm. He is an attorney (Iowa, retired) and was a Licensed Tax Consultant (Retired), as well as having been admitted to practice before the US Tax Court.
Larry received his Oregon tax preparation credentials back in the 1970s and opened his firm in 1978. Since that time, he specialized in personal income tax preparation and representation of clients before the IRS. His commitment to his clients is legendary, and can be seen in the fact that clients who engaged him in the late 1970s are still customers of the firm today.
Larry is enjoying his retirement with his wife, MJ, but keeps an eye on the firm to ensure our continued commitment to our customers and to a high level of excellence.
