Please, leverage my background in finance, tax accounting and law to create a comprehensive financial strategy for your family. If you don't hire me, I recommend hiring another fee-only advisor to ensure you receive the advice you need with minimal conflicts of interest. - Justin Porter, CFP®, CPA, PFS, JD

I serves as a “Family CFO” or “Financial Quarterback” for families who need an advisor to help them manage their total financial picture. Typically, the families I work with are specifically looking for help with long-term financial planning but also need an advisor that has a background in tax, estate planning and/or asset protection due to the nature of their financial picture and goals.
Many of my clients choose to engage me for both investment management and financial planning; however, I also offer advice only planning. In an advice only planning relationship, someone else (you or another advisor) continues to manage the investments and I provide the financial planning strategies. In both relationships, I am bound by a fiduciary duty and I never receive compensation from a third party for the advice I provide my clients.
Most of my clients are located in the southeast; however, even our local clients are opting for virtual meetings. Geography is no longer a limiting factor. I can work with families or individuals located throughout the United States.
Thanks for doing your homework! I enjoy working with families that are willing to research what kind of financial advisor they need. Learning things about the industry like compensation models (commission vs. fee-based vs. fee-only) and standards of care (suitability vs. fiduciary) can positively impact your hiring decision and consequently the type of recommendations you receive. If you found FeeOnlyNetwork.com, you've probably studied all of that already. However, if you're still trying to narrow down how much advice you need to pay for, I created a short quiz to help you. Here is the link to the quiz:
What type of financial plan do you need?
I serve as a “Family CFO” or “Financial Quarterback” for families who need an advisor to help them manage their total financial picture, not just their investments. I founded Porter Wealth Management, LLC (PWM) in February of 2018 on three principles: objective and unbiased advice as a fee-only fiduciary to my clients; competent advice in a convenience economy; and unbundled services to give families more choices and greater transparency.
I am a proud Georgia Tech, Scheller College of Business graduate where I completed my undergraduate degree. I also earned a Juris Doctorate (J.D.) from Georgia State, College of Law. I hold three relavant designations; Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Personal Financial Planning Specialist (PFS) and Certified Financial PlannerTM (CFP®).
Prior to founding PWM, I served as a lead advisor at two Chattanooga registered investment advisory (RIA) firms. Before joining an RIA, I worked with Wells Fargo Private Bank as an expert on tax and estate planning to help ultra-high net worth families ($10mm+ net worth) create succession plans for their business and transfer their wealth efficiently to the next generation. At the start of my career I worked in a boutique estate and corporate law firm and the tax department of a large regional CPA firm. It’s this diversified experience of accounting, law and finance, which allows me to spot planning opportunities that other financial advisors may miss.
