Who We Are

Meet the experienced professionals striving to help you get more out of your retirement.

Weiner Financial Group:

Rooted in relationships

What’s in a name? For us, that answer is everything. Our founder, Laury Weiner, grew up around a true mom-and-pop shop — his grandparents lived on the second floor of the family-run grocery store his father owned and operated. When he founded his own financial services practice in 1997, Laury chose the name Weiner Financial Group to honor his family’s customer-first roots.

“If our store didn’t have something a customer wanted, Dad would send me off to go get it,” Laury recalled. “I realize now I learned so much from my father because, for him, taking care of the customer always came first. He knew them, their families, and wanted to take care of them. If I’m not helping people then I shouldn’t be doing what I’m doing, because it’s really not about the money.”
