Alvini and Associates has expanded into Sussex County by acquiring Todd’s Income Tax and Accounting Service LLC/Todds Financial Services of Laurel. Founded in 1949 by Ralph Todd Sr., the firm has been faithfully serving Sussex County and the surrounding areas for 71 years. Todd started the business while working as a school administrator.

“We will continue to do business here in the well-respected Todds’ name. We wish Ralph and Jill Todd a wonderful retirement and welcome the existing staff members to our firm,” said Michael Alvini.

Alvini founded Alvini and Associates, P.A. in January 2006. Prior to founding the firm, Mr. Alvini spent several years at both a well-known local accounting firm as well as a leading Delaware trust company developing expertise in the areas of income tax planning and compliance (individual, corporate, and estates and trusts), estate and gift tax planning and compliance, personal financial planning, and the use of Delaware trusts to achieve several asset protection, estate planning, and retirement planning goals.

In addition to oversight of the firm, Alvini’s primary specialties are business tax consulting, assisting high net worth individuals in planning for retirement and estate planning, working with professional athletes, and helping clients understand the financial ramifications of divorce through divorce planning.  

Mike holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from Wilmington University. In addition, he is a Certified Public Accountant (licensed to practice in Delaware), a Certified Financial Planner™ Practitioner, as well as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst practitioner. Mike is also a graduate of the Southeastern Trust School of Campbell University and the ABA accredited National Graduate Trust School at Northwestern University. During his career, Alvini has spoken on topics including estate planning, taxation, and the use of Delaware Trusts for several organizations, including Lorman Educational Services (approved speaker) and the Society of Financial Services Professionals.

Alvini is also a member of several organizations, including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the National Society of Tax Professionals, and the Institute For Certified Divorce Financial Analysts. Mike also serves on the board of directors of several local charities and in his free time enjoys coaching high school baseball, boxing, fitness, and travel. 

Alvini and Associates has retained all of the Todds’ employees. The company is also investing in technology, but Alvini says personal touch and client care are the company’s top priority.
