The Lawson Hembree Group
The Lawson Hembree Group wealth management team includes experienced professionals providing wealth management strategies and advice to a diverse clientele of executives, professionals, business owners, retirees and non-profit groups. As a wealth management team, we work with clients and their professional advisors to develop and manage customized strategies and recommendations. This goals-based approach is designed to assist clients in achieving their personal and financial objectives.
As financial markets have grown and evolved, investment decisions have become increasingly more demanding and complex. Therefore, it is important that clients work with a team of advisors who have knowledge, experience and access to robust research and investment vehicles. With a trusted relationship and customized wealth management plan we believe that clients feel confident that their goals will be achieved – from funding education expenses, to planning for retirement, growing a business, providing for unforeseen events or leaving a philanthropic legacy.

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
