My Team

Brian believes that it takes a team to deliver the service and implementation expected in today's fast-paced, high technology environment.

"I believe in the power of synergy- two or three heads are better than one.  With rapid changes in the financial security industry between domestic and global markets, federal and state tax law, financial product innovations and financial strategy implementation, I often use the expertise of my collegues in meeting the diverse needs of clients.  The benefit to my clients is confidence.  Confidence in they are receiving the very latest thinking on integrating tax changes and market changes with the financial dreams most important to them."
