About the Firm

Seeing the bigger picture:  With an extensive background in Estate and Retirement Income Planning combined with the depth of research available from resources such as LPL Financial, our objective is to help you organize your portfolio, simplify your life, plan for a productive retirement and leave a legacy.  Whether you are approaching retirement or already there, needing help with trusts, partnerships or business accounts, charitable planning strategies or simply want to spend your last dollar on your last day, we can help.  Plus, we coordinate our planning efforts with your trusted tax and legal professionals.

You worked hard to get where you are.  Our goal is not only to help you grow and protect your assets but help honor your legacy for the next generation.


What makes us different:

  • Independence:  Our firm is fully independent which means our loyalty is exclusively to the client – not a parent company or a proprietary investment.
  • A Teacher’s Heart:  A teaching approach means that every effort is made to help clients understand the problem, understand the possible solutions and be knowledgeable about the path forward.
  • Debt-Free:  A debt-free practice and a debt-free advisor.  We have made every effort to follow the solutions we promote with our clients.  To that end, we have been debt-free since 2008.  We also feel that being debt-free helps keep the advice free from potential conflicts of interest.
  • Making A Difference:  The firm is charitably inclined with a minimum of 10% of gross revenues (that is income before expenses) being contributed annually to charities nationwide.
