Educational information and counseling is provided over the phone. Consumers who would prefer to meet face-to-face are always welcome to come into our office and participate in individual meetings and/or group seminars. We also provide written information in educational packets that are emailed or sent by US Mail. Additionally, we offer our newsletter, The Consumer Advocate, which is sent out bi-annually. Our website always includes articles and updated information about the latest financial news that is relevant to you.
