Our History

The original firm, Flynn Financial Group Inc., began by finding workout solutions for a number of smaller Massachusett Banks with their lending problems during the early 90's.  He then started to focus on individual and small business tax planning and accounting compliance.  This developed into strategic planning for individual wealth maintenance, minimization of tax liabilities for individuals and corporations and consulting services.  We believe in "old school" principles, but we also believe in keeping up with the needs of individuals and businesses in this rapidly changing world.
