A. Firm Business Philosophy
  • Read Business Philosophy

    L&W’s philosophy remains true to our founder’s goal in 1971: to offer services that address the problems clients experience on the road to financial success. Some people have a clear picture of where they are and where they want to go, but need help with the HOW – how to achieve their goals. They need an experienced team to address the HOW. More than just the investment portfolio, it includes taxes, cash flow, estate goals, risk, and more. Some have a plan for HOW. But, is the right team helping - - is the team trustworthy? Clients need a team experienced in various markets and able to maneuver in the ever-changing tax climate. Clients need a firm 100% committed to the Fiduciary model with the depth to “be there”, even when they are not.
