As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - John Dragstrem, CFP®

Fee-Only Financial Planner Serving the Entire Metro Chicago Area

John Dragstrem is a Wheaton, IL fee-only financial planner. Coyle Financial Counsel, LLC provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, John Dragstrem is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

I love working with all types of families but I have a particular affinity for financial planning for families with special needs. Having an older brother who has Cerebral Palsy I have firsthand experience with the emotional and technical complexities associated with building an effective plan for families in this situation.

Coyle Financial Counsel is the forward thinking innovative team serving families with complex financial situations. We help our clients achieve clarity and confidence by leveraging our highly skilled staff and effective technology. We do this while maintaining a personal touch.

I have enjoyed my involvement with Hearts for Honduras and participated in five missions. The organization began its mission to help Hondurans in the village of Montanuela rebuild their lives following the devastation of Hurricane Mitch in 1998. This experience has helped me develop my collaborative skills in a culture much different than one I normally live.
