Not your parents’
Our clients and their families have reached the next stage of their life where things have gotten more complicated. They have busy lives and want to make sure during their prime earning years, they are focusing on what matters now, as well as planning for their future. Markets go up and down, careers change, college needs funding, and unforeseen life events occur; now is the time to maximize your money’s potential. At this critical point, time is your most valuable asset. The earlier you start planning the more powerful your outcome will be.

Founder, Northbrook Tax & Accounting
Prior to launching Northbrook Financial, Elliot – a summa cum laude graduate of University of Maryland and University of Baltimore – worked in the tax practice of Ernst & Young, a “Big 4” global accounting firm, and Brown Advisory, a multi-national investment advisory firm. With strong tax technical acumen and a deep understanding of personal financial behavioral habits, Elliot connects with his clients by providing objective and actionable advice in relatable laymen’s terms.
When he’s not reading up on the latest changes to the tax code, Elliot enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and two sons. An avid runner and basketball fanatic, he has completed multiple marathons and loves playing and watching basketball with friends and family. He is also a self-described book worm and particularly enjoys reading about behavioral economics, financial markets, and anything related to big wave surfing!
After graduating Loyola University with a concentration in finance, Mike channels his energy into helping clients navigate all of their financial needs. His experience includes a stint on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange, a career focused on investments at Brown Advisory and insurance at Securian Financial. During these experiences he learned that a balanced approach and strategic financial planning is what helps clients achieve their goals.
When not talking to clients or researching the next great opportunity for them, Mike enthusiastically spends time with his wife Steph and their couch, watching whatever she lets him. He loves playing soccer, lacrosse, golf, basketball… and really any sport. When he’s not meeting friends or family at the movies or the local watering hole, you can normally find him reading something very nerdy, like science fiction or financial science.
