Our Mission is to help people accomplish all of their financial and personal goals through a partnership as if they were our own families.

Our practice specializes in working with individuals that are already in retirement or approaching retirement up to 10 years from now.  Prior to engaging our team, most of our families engaged other advisors and did retirement planning previously in their lives.  Despite this, they are still not 100% confident in their plan.  Most need an independent professional opinion on what exactly they should be doing now to achieve what they really need to accomplish for their families.

We answer questions like:

  • How can I position myself now to be able to reduce the taxes I am paying throughout retirement?

  • Can you lay out a game-plan now to mitigate the risk of market downturns in my portfolio?

  • When exactly will I have the option to reduce my workload and employment income?

  • What can I do to increase the confidence that I will not outlive the money I have saved?

  • How can I think about the changing landscape on Social Security and Medicare benefits?

  • Where can I have the option to retire at?  Can I afford to plan for 2 homes in retirement?

  • How can I continue to live my same lifestyle despite inflation decreasing my purchasing power?

  • Can you describe to me how I can handle an expensive health problem for me or my spouse?

  • What can I do now to enable me to tax-efficiently give money in the future to my family and charities?

David has worked in financial services since 2001 and is a member of the Estate Planning Council of Pittsburgh.

Certifications & Designations

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) certification is one of the most recognized financial planning marks in the world.

The certification differs from an educational designation or state license in that it is based upon requirements that have been determined by extensive job analyses of actual practitioners in the field, and therefore, continue to evolve with the profession.
