Planning Specialties

Fiduciary First Advisors and its predecessor, Vigil Trust & Financial Advocacy, have been providing financial advocacy services to clients since 1988. We are knowledgeable, experienced professionals hired to represent and advocate for clients in their financial decisions, helping them achieve customized solutions to their financial challenges. With our help, our clients make the decisions they would make on their own if they had the time to completely research all of their options and had the training and experience to properly assess these alternatives. As an independent company compensated only by the professional fee we charge for our services, our guidance is not compromised by the conflicts of interest which plague financial conglomerates and other advisers.
