Meet Our Team

Marc Garlett

To accomplish this, he designs estate plans that not only pass on financial assets, but that also preserve family legacies (including intangible assets such as wisdom, values, and stories) which empowers his clients and their families to build and transfer realwealth from generation to generation.
