Larry M. Elkin, CPA, CFP®, has provided personal financial and tax counseling to a sophisticated client base since 1986. After six years with Arthur Andersen, where he was a senior manager for personal financial planning and family wealth planning, he founded his own firm in Hastings on Hudson, New York in 1992. That firm grew steadily and became Palisades Hudson Financial Group LLC, which moved to Scarsdale, New York in 2002. The firm expanded to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in 2005, and to Atlanta, Georgia, in 2008.

Larry received his B.A. in journalism from the University of Montana in 1978, and his M.B.A. in accounting from New York University in 1986. Larry was a reporter and editor for The Associated Press from 1978 to 1986. He covered government, business and legal affairs for the wire service, with assignments in Helena, Montana; Albany, New York; Washington, D.C.; and New York City's federal courts in Brooklyn and Manhattan.

In 1997 Larry established the organization's investment advisory business, which managed more than 0 million as of April 2010. As president of Palisades Hudson, Larry maintains individual professional relationships with many of the firm's clients, who reside in more than 25 states, from Maine to California, as well as in several foreign countries. He is the author of Financial Self-Defense for Unmarried Couples (Currency Doubleday, 1995), which was the first comprehensive financial planning guide for unmarried couples. He also is the editor and publisher of Sentinel, a quarterly newsletter on personal financial planning, and the lead author of the daily online opinion column, Current Commentary.

Larry served as president of the Estate Planning Council of New York City, Inc., in 2005-2006. In 2009 the Council presented Larry with its first-ever Lifetime Achievement Award, praising his service to the organization and "his tireless efforts in promoting our industry by word and by personal example as a consummate estate planning professional." He is regularly interviewed by national and regional publications, and has made nearly 100 radio and television appearances.

Larry has been featured or quoted in a variety of publications. Most recently, he has outlined the legal and financial problems that unmarried couples can face when they buy a home together. You can read this article by clicking the media coverage link.
