File-and-Suspend, Suspended When Special Care Is Needed: The Special Needs Trust Coaches A Fruitful Retirement: Social Security Benefit

Welcome to Target Wealth Strategies, L.L.C. I created this company out of a desire to be able to offer clear, unbiased advice to my clients. After working at a large multi-national investment firm, I felt that my clients deserved a Financial Advisor who could empower their objectives and not just place them in a corporate cookie cutter mold. I continue to remain affiliated with LPL Financial, one of the largest national networks of independent financial service providers (as reported in Financial Planning Magazine, 1996-2014, based on total revenue). Remaining independent allows me to realize a commitment to my profession, the community and ultimately the financial independence of TWS clients. Thank you for visiting my webpage.
