But even the best financial advisors out there have a hard time really explaining how things work to a client who knows absolutely nothing about the business. An attorney, however — especially one well versed and specialized in finance, investments, and business law — can work with your advisor and get things squared away without you having to pick your own brain and move some shelves aroundRead More →

Why Quality Control’s Essential to the Financial Expert

One of the many questions a prospective client would ask of any financial expert in the field is this: have you had any complaints? Scary question. But a good customer will pose that inquiry with gusto, determining if said financial advisor truly does hold his/her own in the industry, perhaps with minimal issues. Why is this important?
