Broker Check


We believe that proactive and open communication with your tax and legal professionals is critical to helping you pursue your financial goals. Clear communication between your professional partners is the only way to help ensure your tax, estate and investment planning needs are aligned with your objectives.

We are happy to work with your existing team of attorneys or tax advisors to coordinate strategies. For your convenience, we can also provide you with referrals to the outside professionals (CPAs, attorneys) we work with on a regular basis.  

Please note we do not draft legal documents, give legal advice or prepare tax returns. We can help by analyzing your tax return, offering possible solutions or alternative ideas to financial situations and giving explanations when you need them.
