He has passed the NASD Series 7 and 66 license exams. Additionally, he has been licensed by the state of New Jersey to provide insurance requests in the areas of life, health, property and casualty.

By committing to a "Fee-Only" practice, he dispels any potential conflicts of interest by not selling any products and therefore receives no commissions introduced by doing so.  Mr. O’Brien is a Notary Public and a QuickBooks ProAdvisor.
