Step 1 – Initial Phone Meeting
Before committing your time or ours, this 30-minute phone call will give us both a chance to make sure your situation matches our expertise. After all, you wouldn’t see a Orthopedic surgeon if you needed heart surgery.
Step 2 – First Meeting

This is where you’ll see, in dollars and cents, how our firm may be able to improve your finances and investments.
At the end of this meeting we’ll ask if you would like to begin working with our firm or if you would like to sleep on it.
Step 5 – Sleep on it
Nobody wants to feel rushed into making a decision. We understand you may wish to sleep on it before taking that next step. We know how critical this decision is and we never pressure you to move your assets before you’re ready. Prior to deciding whether we should work together, you’ll want to answer the following questions.

• Will the benefits they provide exceed their cost?
• Do I understand and agree with their investment and planning philosophy?
• Do their recommendations make sense to me?
Step 6 – Implementation Meeting
During this meeting we’ll answer any questions you have and if you’re ready, start the paperwork to become a client.
