I am the founder and principal advisor of Jersey Shore Financial Advisors LLC dedicated to working with new widows/widowers who are looking to:
• understand & organize their new financial lives;
• evaluate & prioritize financial decisions;
• establish a financial life plan to live forward without fear.
I do not work for an insurance company or investment firm. It’s just me and you. In fact I will put in writing that I am a fiduciary and will put your interests first.
I can differentiate my firm vs most others in that I charge on a fixed-fee basis for "advice only" financial planning.
