Who We Are In the beginning . . .Over 40 years ago, an FBI agent recognized a former U.S. assistant district attorney at their sons' swimming meet. Patrick Bria and Jim Tucker were introduced by their fathers that day and became lifelong friends. They ended up swimming together for the Pittsburgh Aquatic Club and both attended Duke University, where they continued their friendship.Life took each on different paths after Duke but ultimately led them both to financial advisory careers in Durham, North Carolina. In February 2013, they pooled their varied business experiences and joined together to form Tucker Bria Wealth Strategies, LLC, a wealth advisory firm.A new firm is formed . . .Tucker Bria is structured to focus on your needs and the benefits of coordinating your life goals and aspiration with your estate attorney, CPA and your other trusted advisors.
