"Jim has helped us for over 14 years but never as much as when my family and I needed him during the illness and death of my husband. He has not only been our financial advisor, but a friend and confidant and has been there every step of the way... Thank you so much Jim."

Rick & Susan

"When it suddenly hit me that retirement wasn’t so far away, I called Jim for help. We went over all my finances, talked about the plans my wife and I had for retirement, our hopes to travel, to leave our children an inheritance, charitable giving, even our health. Jim recommended a strategy that will give us a lifetime income and allow us to do most of what we hope to do. Thanks Jim!!!"

Dave & Sara

"We met Jim after we’d been retired a few years, and just asked him over for a friendly Estate Review... Jim showed us that unless we changed our spending and investments, in 12 years we would be completely out of funds. Jim spent many hours with us setting up a new financial plan, not only securing us the lifestyle we wanted, but covered our future plans."

Wayne & Colleen

"We have found Jim to be sincere and honest which is so important to us. As we have gotten older, our desires and needs have changed, but all of the products Jim recommended to us have served us well. We are very happy with his services."
