Jeffrey Steinberg has combined his three decades of financial and legal expertise to become specialized in the areas of financial, retirement and estate planning. He is committed to helping his clients plan for and meet all of their financial goals so they can honor the promises they have made to themselves and their loved ones.
Jeff saw his grandparents retire in their mid 70's with a decent sized nest egg. Less than 10 years later they ran out of money and had to rely on Medicaid to live. They ran out of money because they never had a financial/retirement plan. This event made him realize that he wanted to do all he could to prevent this from happening to others and to help make others lives better financially. This ignited his passion to inspire people to do with their money what they need to do instead of what they want to do. This became his WHY.
The future is unpredictable but Jeff knows we can and should prepare for it. He feels that sound financial planning is the ultimate extension of the love you have for your family. It is a way of creating joy and peace of mind in a world of chaos and entropy. It helps prepare you for the critical financial events in your life, some of which are predictable and some of which are not.
Jeff believes the only sustainable basis for a successful advisor/client relationship is perfect mutual trust. Trust is the most important currency in the world. He also believes that all successful planning and investing is goal-oriented and planning-driven whereas all unsuccessful investing is market-oriented and performance-driven. He feels that the essential foundation of all financial success is thrift: the deferral of gratification, the act of not living within one’s means but below it, and investing the difference. Jeff does not value the things he has in his life, but rather the people he has in his life. He feels that the true measure of net worth is to be loved by those we want to be loved by.
