Mark W. Friedman, CPA, PFS, AWMA
My education, experience and professional affiliations have cultivated my practical approach to providing wealth management, tax, and estate planning advice for my clients. As a Certified Public Accountant, Personal Financial Specialist, and Accredited Wealth Management Advisor with over twenty-five years of experience, I am positioned to guide you with well rounded financial advice.
After growing up in Tallahassee, I attended Florida State University, earning Finance and Accounting degrees. After working for five years in a local family-owned CPA firm, I decided to live closer to the water and moved to historic Apalachicola, Florida. Over the next seventeen years, I built a successful accounting and wealth management firm, while becoming an active community leader. In 2016, I decided to move back to Tallahassee for my daughter's education, as well as assist with aging family members. Currently I split my time between my offices in Eastpoint, Tallahassee, and Southwest Florida.
