About us

Lawrence Cohen, C.P.A

Founding partner in the firm and previous to his public accounting career, Larry spent 8 years with the IRS where he progressed through the service, leaving as a Senior International Examiner, one of the IRS’s most prestigious positions. The firm has a variety of clients ranging from start up companies to companies doing in excess of 15 million dollars in annual sales. The corporate client list spans numerous fields; from contractors, real estate investors, and wholesale businesses to medical and legal practices. As a result of Larry’s background with the IRS, the practice regularly does work for high net worth clients, successfully dealing with the IRS on audits, offers in compromise, and other negotiations. Larry has written articles for professional publications and has been engaged to give informative talks to a variety of different interest groups. To add to an already successful practice, in 2007 Larry brought in Timothy H. Mason, CPA as a partner, and in 2011 they formed a new company Cohen & Mason CPA’s, P.C.
