There should be a more endearing term for ‘client’ as you are more than just people we work for. To us, you’re more than a balance sheet and risk tolerance data.
Our clients are people who open up and share with us their aspirations and goals, their obstacles and fears. They share so much more with us; anecdotes from their childhood, news about their growing families, stories of their travel adventures, news of their child’s acceptance into their college of choice, and celebratory news of their recent promotion or business success.
They also reveal their less exciting, or sometimes devastating news; being laid off at work, an unfortunate automobile accident, a pending divorce, details about a recent medical diagnosis, and the death of a spouse, parent, or loved one.
Our clients entrust us with the personal aspects of their lives; and together we celebrate their victories as well as mourn their losses. Surely, there must be a more endearing term for our clients.

Careful estate planning is a thoughtful and extremely valuable gift that you may bestow upon your heirs. Our goal is to ensure that your assets are passed on as you wish, in a tax-efficient manner, while minimizing the burden on your heirs.
It is important to discuss the complexities of estate law, accounting and administration involved in your estate. Have you worked with an attorney to create your estate plan documents? Are your estate documents current with today’s estate tax legislation? Estate planning does not end with the creation of your planning documents. Estate and asset positioning is a vital step that is too often overlooked.
Are you 100% confident that you have your assets titled properly? We help facilitate asset positioning and re-titling assets as needed so that your estate plan accomplishes everything you intended. We work together, in conjunction, with you, your estate planning attorney, and perhaps your accountant, to provide a multi-faceted approach that addresses your specific circumstances and final wishes.
As you develop your financial plan, risk management is often overlooked. It is important to use risk management tools such as life, disability, long-term care and personal liability insurance to protect your assets from unpredictable events which could have major negative consequences if unplanned for.
