Retirement can offer fantastic opportunities for tax reduction, if we implement the appropriate financial planning and investing strategies. An independent CPA is essential to make these strategies work.


We help our clients match their desires to give to family & charities with various Estate Planning techniques. Attorneys are invaluable as another set of eyes to advise and to draft the legal documents.

Insurance Specialists

The amount of medical, life, disability, long term care, property & casualty, and other insurance can change significantly in retirement. While each client has a unique situation, everyone needs objective advice.

Housing Specialists

At least once in retirement, everyone's housing situation changes. Downsizing, buying a 2nd home, moving to a community, or modifying a home to age in place all require advance planning and experts.
