William I. Steinberg, CFP®
Bill joined Kelman-Lazarov in 1995. As an advisory associate, his focus is on wealth management and he works closely with clients to help them make well-informed long-term decisions.
“Virtually all of my new clients come from the referrals of trusted existing clients, resulting in a feeling of friendship and family,” Bill says. “Very few people who come into the fold tend to leave K-L. I am constantly in awe of the extraordinary level of concierge-like service that our clients consistently enjoy from our entire gifted staff. It's an increasingly rare thing in our modern techno-society.”
Bill was previously employed as an Associate Vice President of Investments with Raymond James & Associates, a member firm of the New York Stock Exchange. A CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ since 1994, he has served as a board member, officer, and program director of the Mid-South Society of the Institute of Certified Financial Planners, now known as the Financial Planning Association.
