Planning Specialties

Lighthouse Financial Planning, LLC's (LFP) Vision --
  • Lighthouses serve as beacons of strength, resolve, safety and hope. Lighthouses mark dangerous courses to be avoided and offer safe entries to the harbors of our dreams. They operate from a solid base, offering long-term, objective and valuable services through good and bad times to those folk from all walks-of-life who heed their messages.
  • LFP is committed to using its expertise and  experience to leave the world and those we serve better off.
  • While LFP offers its clients professional, objective investment advice and asset management, we chose to compliment the name Lighthouse with the term Financial Planning in our firm’s name to covey the context in which we prefer to offer all our services, including asset management. We believe it is important to first define your goals, address your risks, and plan for the expected and unexpected, be they taxes, incapacity, death, unforeseen liabilities, or retirement before one turns to addressing investments in the context of your individual risk tolerance and situation.
  • Headquartered in Potomac, Maryland, LFP also  meets with clients in Fairfax, VA,  and Rockland County and Manhattan, NY.
  • As it increasingly focuses on a wealthier clientele with more complex financial planning issues, LFP is ensuring that it continues to serve the middle class market.
