Why Did We Choose This Niche?
When we opened our doors in 2010, the marketplace quickly made obvious the need for financial advisors who could deliver comprehensive divorce planning. Thoughtfully, and with compassion, our Divorce Planning practice was built. We have found that clients become overwhelmed with gathering the required data and support for the divorce process. Many times they are paralyzed and get stuck because they are fearful for their future financial security. Through personal and professional experience, our team is aptly qualified to transition any client toward financial confidence and understanding.
