Meet Hirsch Serman, MBA, CPA, CDFA®, Financial Divorce Coach


Hirsch Serman, MBA, CPA, CDFA®, Financial Divorce Coach


The finance aspect of a divorce can feel stressful and daunting and confusing. How do I know how much money I need to live comfortably?  Am I going to be able to stay in my home? How am I going to prepare my taxes without a spouse? What should I ask for in the divorce? These are all questions that most people really don’t even know how to begin answering, and they have so little confidence in themselves when it comes to anything financial related.

Well guess what? Did you know there is someone who can actually hold your hand during your entire divorce to help you make important financial decisions? Yep. His name is Hirsch Serman, and I’ve known him for quite a few years. Hirsch, who holds an MBA is also a CPA and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA).

Hirsch isn’t trying to get you to invest your money with him, (in fact, he can connect you with a financial advisor for that) but rather he will act as your financial divorce coach, guiding you through the process from the day you get separated (or even if you are considering divorce and want to know your options before you make a decision) until your divorce is finalized, and even beyond!

I am so excited to welcome Hirsch as a Divorced Girl Smiling trusted professional. I know so many people who have worked with him and say he made their divorce process so much easier, and that he got them a better outcome than they think they’d have had without him. Welcome, Hirsch!

“I wanted to reach out and thank you.  Having my sessions with you really helped me get my thoughts and finances in order.  I was able to pay off my credit cards and now instead of paying over $1,000 a month, I only need to pay $400.  I can’t tell you how relieved I am.  You are amazing at what you do and I was very fortunate to have met you.”

“Working with you…your wisdom, guidance, (and kind way) was like someone throwing me a life raft while I was sinking, and I will be forever grateful to you for that.”

“It has been such a pleasure working with you and I am so deeply grateful for your help, guidance, wisdom, and leading me out of what once felt like an endless tunnel.  In showing me how to become debt free, you also helped me see that I can and will move forward after a really difficult situation, and for that I am eternally grateful.”

“Working with you has been a bright, steady, and reassuring part of an otherwise chaotic and sometimes punishing process.  I am extremely grateful for your intelligence, expertise, humor, hard work, and decency.”      

“What a reversal!  When I came to you I knew I had to spend money to protect my future.  After you were done, there was an additional $200,000 coming my way.  In your language, what a great return on investment.  Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

“Thank you so very much. I can’t express how grateful I am to you and what you’ve found. It is a big deal for me. I’m so thankful she connected us and I hope my attorney will use your services in the future as well now that you have that connection and she sees the value you bring.”  

“Everything went smoothly. I’m emotionally grateful for all your support and the incredible work you did for me.”
