Case Studies

While every client is different, we notice some common characteristics in clients who we are uniquely qualified to serve. We have found that our clients receive the most value from us when they are in the middle of—or preparing for—a major life transition. They typically spend their careers in service to our country, either in the military, as a federal employee or as a government contractor, and have a long list of financial matters they haven’t had the time to handle. We work with collaborators—people who are busy and want help getting their financial house in order.

We also have a lot of experience serving surviving spouses and family members after the death of a loved one. We take extra care to walk beside these clients every step of the way as we work to understand and settle the financial affairs of the deceased.

Take a look at some case studies that represent scenarios we encounter in our work. While fictitious, these case studies give a good idea of who we frequently serve.
