LFM&P’s dedication to its fee-only, comprehensive financial approach grew out of a combination of David’s prior experience as a systems executive and our experiences, like yours, as customers of the financial industry. The systems knowledge provides the capability to look at personal financial solutions from an overall viewpoint that integrates the many inter-related elements. Our financial consumer orientation drives our commitment to provide unbiased advice and cost-effective solutions. We believe this is a rare and valuable combination.
