David established Cypress Tax Advisors, LLC in 2008 after moving to Florida with his family. At that time he sold most of his existing practice, and brought the rest of the clients with him. The business has grown substantially over the years, now serving clients in 34 states (and DC), and US citizens living in 12 foreign countries. His eldest daughter, Jen, became a partner in 2019 and they have continued to grow the business together.
