Gary and his team assist individuals and business owners develop stable retirement plans to ensure their savings will be there when they need it. Gary uses “The Team”
approach, which he feels works best for his clients when building them a solid financial future. To accomplish this, Gary utilizes his own expertise, as well as several of the top local and national Attorneys and CPAs in the country. He feels that one person simply cannot have all education, knowledge, and experience to do it alone.

Gary educates groups and various organizations on the local and national levels. Along with educating the public through these speaking engagements, he also is a mentor to other professionals in areas where they can help their own clients better protect their retirement savings and lower their income/estate taxes. Gary also specializes in planning for high net worth individuals such as athletes, celebrities, and business owners. He designs plans that have drastically increased their estate size, but also reduces their net worth from future excess taxation, which helps keep more in their pockets. For business owners, Gary helps them retain their valued employees by setting up various retirement plans and protects the businesses with different types of trusts that have numerous amounts of benefits available to them – which most entrepreneurs are completely unaware of. Currently, Gary offers his services in 13 states throughout the country.
