ABOUT OUR FIRM

At William J. Chandek & Associates, LLC, we focus on working with clients who have a compelling personal motivation to do planning. We believe that the foundation of what we provide to our clients is to understand the value of planning for themselves and their loved ones - not just saving tax dollars.  We believe in taking the "collaborative approach" to business and estate planning, as well as to post-mortem administration of trusts and estates. We have found that effective and responsible service to our clients requires us to maintain relationships with other competent and motivated professionals including business consultants, CPA's, financial planners, insurance brokers/agents, stock brokers, trust officers, and real estate professionals. We recognize that planning is an on-going process, and that our client’s needs and lives will change over time, so we continue to be a source of experience and help for them as time goes on.
