Our Team

The JCL team not only has decades of combined financial experience, but is also very ethical and approachable. When providing advice as fiduciaries, we put your needs ahead of our own and emphasize transparency with every financial decision. We take time to understand your unique scenario and explain it in terms you can easily comprehend. Also, we understand the importance of continuing education, as many teammates constantly keep their knowledge up to date on recent financial industry changes. They do this by reading exclusive content for financial advisors, taking continuing education courses, and going to seminars. Related to this, our planners strive to enhance their knowledge by obtaining advanced certifications like the CFP® and RICP®.

Our staff members are always available to answer your questions, guide you through financial processes and keep you calm during volatile times.
