About me

I have a varied background:  besides being an attorney, I'm a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), a Certified Financial Planner (CFP) and a Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA).  I view my role as a wealth manager. I reduce uncertainty in my client's financial well being with the help of my team of experts (other Attorneys, CPAs, CFPs, AIFs and CFAs). They work on three primary aspects of a client's life: investments and financial needs, tax planning and preparation, and estate planning considerations.  We do this without commission, or any product-based compensation. In other words, we act as a fiduciary to our clients, looking out for their best interests. For more about myself, LaBrecque and Associates, LJPR Financial Advisors, and how we reduce uncertainty, visit
