No, we are not attorneys. We evaluate your proposal from a financial perspective. All advice and recommendations provided will be financial in nature. We do not provide legal advice but would be happy to refer you to someone if you are in need of legal advice.
We would be happy to collaborate with your attorney if they are open to it.
Everyone's financial situation is unique and the documents needed are based on your specific financial situation. To get started, begin collecting all account statements and the last three years of tax returns. We can discuss a more specific list at your first appointment.
The length of time to complete the plan is determined based on our current caseload as well as the complexity of your case. Most initial plans can be completed within two weeks. We will update the plan to reflect your final settlement. That way, you are armed with the information you need to make wise financial settlement decisions.
We offer comprehensive financial planning and investment management with Great Lakes Investment Management. Once your case is final, we can transition you to ongoing financial planning services.
