Brad Biren is an elder law and estate planning attorney with specialized training in tax law. He is passionate about crisis Medicaid planning, special needs planning, and reducing tax liability. Much of his work also focuses on business and land-use consulting for startups, early ventures, and agriculture.

In 2006, he became the youngest person in the state of Florida to obtain LEED Accreditation. Mr. Biren moved to Iowa to attend the University of Iowa College of Law and graduated top of his class. Later, Brad obtained his LL.M. in Taxation from Washington University in St. Louis, where his academic advisor also served as General Counsel for the IRS.
