About Us

Our Firm

Gary and Marty

Kopmeyer & Talty PC was established in Livonia in the fall of 1993. When Gary Kopmeyer and Marty Talty decided to move the firm to Livonia, they did so in order to become a part of the community where they were raising their families. They also wanted to be directly involved in the planning and advisory services they offer their client base. Gary and Marty worked together to grow the firm and create an environment that fostered open communication and respect among the team members in the firm and encourage the best client service possible. Since 1993, the firm has grown substantially, and serves not only the metro Detroit area, but also serves clients all over the country.

Unfortunately, in February of 2009, Gary Kopmeyer passed away, but his memory lives large within the firm.  He was an integral part of the development and growth of this practice.  Not only was Gary a business partner and beloved brother-in-law, but also a friend and mentor.  The firm continues to honor him by retaining the same firm name as when first started.

Please check out the biographies listed below of all the great people that make up the firm of Kopmeyer & Talty PC.
