Mike Staman is the Founder and Financial Advisor at Delaware Financial Planning.

I founded Delaware Financial Planning to build the firm that I would hire if I was looking for an advisor. Flat, transparent pricing, and an emphasis on controlling the things that matter through deep-dive financial planning. A place to turn when you have financial questions but don't want to be sold any products. I’m applying 25+ years of experience to a select number of families, helping them maximize their financial situation.

I have expertise in retirement, tax, and estate planning, and especially enjoy helping with charitable giving. Focusing on mid to late-stage professionals looking to retire or reach financial independence in the next 5-10 years, my goal is to add massive value and improve the lives of the families I'm honored to serve.
