Joseph Gaj

By providing ongoing education, my clients are empowered to make well informed and confident financial decisions.

With over 10 years of experience in financial services, Joe takes great pride in providing expert advice to individuals regarding their life, disability income and long term care insurances.  Joe provides comprehensive planning to a wide variety of clients including, medical professionals, corporate executives and private business owners.  In this complex and fast-changing financial landscape, Joe believes in providing ongoing education to his clients, keeping them well-informed and prepared for life’s sudden changes.
