Dick Harsin is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®). He began his career in 1984 when he started a CPA firm after leaving the Navy. In 1994 he launched Harsin Wealth Management, so he could better help his clients achieve their ideal retirement. Dick has been doing divorce planning for many years.
“In 1972, while serving in Vietnam, I received a “Dear Dick” letter stating my ex-wife wanted a divorce. Upon returning to the United States I was served with divorce papers. Even though I was in the service I desired to have custody of my daughter and after a lengthy period of time, I did so.
At the time she was 2 1/2 years old and I became a single dad. After a while, I realized I could continue my life and I also realized how naïve I had been. There had been no real financial planning and I was stuck with a large amount of debt. Since that time it has been my goal to help educate others of the need for financial planning when getting a divorce.”
Today, Dick enjoys meeting with his clients as much as he did on day one. To best serve them, he has continually enhanced his knowledge with additional training, networking and skill development. In addition, he has regularly conducted educational workshops on current trends surrounding retirement and divorce planning throughout the Puget Sound region for over 20 years, serving not only his clients but also helping to educate the broader community.
Dick is one of a very small number of advisors participating in continuous education to become a part of nationally known IRA expert Ed Slott’s Master Elite IRA Advisor Group. He regularly travels around the country to meet study groups made up of colleagues who have also dedicated themselves to being the best IRA advisors in the country.
