Broker Check

Our Company

Our practice was started in the early 1970s, when David Burstin and several senior partners at the time, sought to build a practice that not only offered continuity planning to its clients, but also itself had a solid continuity plan in place.

We have always taken the approach that we need to thank our clients for their trust by doing business with them. Whether that means personally becoming your client, or using our extensive network to bring business to you, we firmly believe in learning as much as we can about you so that we can be instrumental to your success beyond simply providing you with financial services.

Over the years, as various partners retired and others joined, our practice has grown to serve hundreds of businesses, not-for-profits, their owners, employees, and their families. We have become known in the Pittsburgh area and beyond for being a boutique firm with expertise in business insurance, voluntary executive benefits, and estate planning strategies.

We decided to partner with each other because we believed that both in terms of breadth and depth of knowledge and experience, we could collectively serve our clients much better than any of us could individually. For this reason, we do not operate as four individual practices; we are convinced we are better as one.

It is exciting to look back at what we have accomplished, yet even more thrilling to look at the possibilities ahead.
