Planning Specialties

Brady works with individuals and families to help them achieve their financial goals and dreams.  Brady works with individuals from many different professions, but in particular he tends to work with a lot of medical and dental professionals. 

New clients typically start with an Initial Financial Overview.  This is a complete review of their financial situation.  We look at the assets, liabilities, income and expenses.  Then we can begin the process of running cash flow projections, risk management scenarios, estate planning and tax planning.  In addition, a deep review of the investment portfolio is provided. 

Once the Initial Financial Overview is complete, clients can then determine if they want to work with Galecki on an ongoing basis.  For those individuals or families, we typically meet 3-4 times per year to look at the areas of financial planning that are impacting their loves the most.  This could be college planning, retirement planning, cash flow planning, estate planning, risk management, or tax planning.  To learn more, visit and schedule your initial meeting.
