I believe in fee-only planning because I feel strongly that the focus should always be on the client and what’s in their best financial interest. I have a decade of experience building comprehensive financial plans for families and individuals. Many of the issues my clients are facing I’ve faced, too. It’s fun to strategize together on the best ways to pay down debt, plan for retirement, or save on taxes. Seeing the different opportunities open up for my clients is always exciting. I find setting them up for their brightest financial future to be incredibly rewarding.
For a long time, I worked with an independent firm focusing on high net worth individuals. During my time there, I began to carve out a niche working with physicians and engineers. Soon, I realized it was time to strike out on my own. In 2013, I established Solari Financial Planning, a fee-only financial planning firm from scratch.
I’ve been very fortunate to grow a practice around my family and that’s been most fulfilling. Both of our boys, George and Charlie, keep us very busy. When I’m not in the office, you’ll find us on a ballfield, a park, a lake or an ocean.
My experience and expertise have led to requests and quotes in notable publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Chicago Tribune, The Boston Globe, InvestmentNews and US News & World Report.
