Before Adam Brindza can speak intelligently about the products and services that might be appropriate for you and your family, he needs to get to know you. And, before you can feel comfortable sharing your goals and dreams, you need to get to know him.

"In my 24 plus years in the financial services industry I have come to realize that the one constant is change.  I strive to continually learn,  develop and adapt to my clients needs as they grow older and begin to realize their dreams.  Having 3 teenage daughters and a beautiful wife of 20+  years I fight for my clients as I would want my advisor to fight for me and my family.  My greatest pride is knowing that once called upon our planning will assist a grieving family during a tragedy while also providing the joyful moments of educating children and grandchildren.  Assisting my clients with a robust retirement portfolio and legacy planning allow their plan to be fully completing."

Through personal commitment, professional associations, accreditations and continuing education, Adam has worked hard to establish a reputation as a respected professional and to gain the trust of clients. Please take a moment to review his experiences and accomplishments.
