A Plan For Continuing to Serve Our Clients

I enjoy helping my clients accomplish their goals. With assistance from Bill Manby Jr., and Matt Slonsky, we will be available when clients need us. I do not plan to change my commitment to my clients. However, should there be a day that comes that I am not physically able to continue, I have very competent and caring associates that will allow my clients to continue to receive very professional advice:
