Aaron Hessel, J.D.
For me, there is no greater professional reward than seeing my clients succeed. I never tire watching their families grow and mature, knowing I helped provide the advice and tools they needed to achieve financial and lifestyle independence. I build long-term relationships with my clients by earning their trust and following through on my promises. Their success is my success.
In addition to my wealth management practice, I am an attorney licensed in Oregon and Washington and provide estate and business planning services to clients throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Early on I realized why clients are so often frustrated with their lawyers and financial advisors. Most advisors don’t know the law, and most lawyers don’t understand the complexities of securities, insurance and investments. What almost every attorney and advisor misses is that the right strategy requires the understanding that building wealth is only half the battle; protecting it for the future is the other half.
The best approach requires an understanding of both. I have that understanding, and it gives me a unique perspective that benefits my clients as we collaboratively build their financial plan.
Nothing is more important to me than my family. My amazing wife Sharon and our five incredible children are my world. We live together with our animals in West Linn and love to spend time outdoors, traveling, and exploring the Pacific Northwest.
I'm a native Oregonian and a graduate of Lewis and Clark Law School in Portland, the University of Oregon and Beaverton High School. So, don't worry, I'm not going anywhere. I look forward to meeting, getting to know you, and serving you soon.
Your success really is my success.
