"We'll Be With You" - A Look At Our Business Philosophy:

The idea behind this statement has been an integral part of our firm since our inception in 1974. This continues to be the driving force in our daily operations today.

We do this the best way we know how... by developing a personal relationship with each client; focusing on individual concernsutiliziing and implementing prudent strategies that seek to maximize the creation and preservation of multi-generational wealth.

We then find "common sense" solutions utilizing competitive products with companies with proven track records, backed by sound investments with quality ratings and reliable service

We stand behind every promise made.We  use proven strategies that produce results that blend safety, liquidity, competitive and reasonable returns our clients want and expect from us.

We invite you to take a closer look. We think you'll not only like what you see, but will find that our philosophy is more than just a statement. It is reality!

Remember, "We'll be with you,"  We're Legacy Financial Solutions!


These are a few of our beliefs:

  1. We believe personal values like integrity, honesty, morality, discipline, and patience are timeless and transcends generations past, present, and future.
  2. We believe these same values, when combined with certain financial concepts, principles, and implemented through proven successful strategies, can add greater value to important investments, planning, and savings decisions made even today.
  3. We believe making informed decisions, avoiding mistakes, and knowing "WHAT" and "HOW"  to do the right thing is both invaluable and eternal.
  4. We believe there are no substitutes for knowledge, proven performance, experience and trust.
  5. We believe the safety of your money should be/ and is our #1 priority at all times!
  6. We believe the return"OF" your money is just as important to us as the return "ON" your money. 
  7. We believe your money should work as hard today as you did earning it yesterday!
  8. We believe it is possible to control the amount of taxes you have to pay; the IRS tax code can be legally used to your advantage!
  9. We believe the promise of financial security is only as good as the company who makes it!
  10. We believe that next to outliving your money, inflation is your greatest concern. Inflation is like "sandpaper" reducing the purchasing power of your current and future income.
  11. We believe  it's  not how much you earn, it's how much you keep that matters.
  12. We believe professional trusted planning assistance reduces mistakes, and increases peace of mind results.
  13. We believe most everyone's sitution is uniquely different and that there is no"one size fits all formula" for financial security. There are no cookie cutter" solutions for our clients nor substitutes for customized roadmaps designed to meet curent needs,  specific goals, and/or future objectives.


We will at all times put our client's interest above our own.

We will maintain proficiency in our work through continuing education

We will apply the principles of integrity, objectivity, competence, fairness, confidentiality, objectivity and diligence  daily in all of our planning efforts to those we serve.

We will use whatever amount of time  and skill is required to make sure customized financial roadmaps have been  properly designed with solution recommendations that work. 

We will abide by both the spirit and the letter of the laws and regulations applicable to financial planning services.
