At Michael E Halla & Associates, we understand that pre-retirees and retirees face many important decisions that can affect their long-term financial success.

Because 90% of our clients are pre-retirees and retirees with similar concerns, we are in an advantageous position to approach such challenges with experience and skill. Our professional services include:  Financial Advisement, Insurance, Annuities, Stocks, Bonds, and Mutual Funds.
