Modules of Financial Planning

Financial and Tax Planning

We aim to help attorneys assess their financial health, set realistic financial and personal goals, and develop comprehensive plans to meet those goals. All while while mitigating their largest expense, taxes.

Investment Analysis and Management

Investors make decisions relying on the relative profit potential of investment alternatives. The wrong choices may be made if systematic and quantitative methods are not used to monitor risk, cash flows, and resale value. This is why we provide ongoing evaluation of your current and potential allocations of financial assets while choosing those allocations that best fit your needs, liquidity, taxes and goals.

Insurance and Employee Benefit Analysis

As a natural part of life, there are many risks that threaten your well-being and financial security no matter how hard you’ve worked. Nobody wants to think about death, disability, or other potential hardships when they’re doing a financial plan, but for us it’s an essential part of every client relationship. This begins with maximizing your employee benefits and bridging the gap with a needs analysis.

Estate and Asset Protection Planning

Estate planning is one of the most important steps any person can take to make sure that their final property and health care wishes are honored, and that loved ones are provided for in their absence. Though often overlooked or put off in favor of more immediate concerns, a comprehensive estate plan can resolve a number of legal questions that arise whenever anyone dies: What is the state of their financial affairs? What real and personal property do they own? Who gets what? Does a personal guardian need to be appointed to care for minor children? How much tax will need to be paid in order to transfer property ownership?

Cashflow and Debt Management

Understanding the fundamentals of cash flow management, including cash flow projections, best practices to improve your own cash flow and prudent allocation of net cash flows toward retirement, managing leverage and college planning. Net cash flow is an important measure of financial health for any household.
