Financial Planning for Attorneys by an Attorney

Financial Planning for Lawyers

Power Forward Group's LawFin service is completely tailored to attorneys' needs-  from student loan management to advanced tax planning strategies. Our founder, Ruvin Levavi, leverages his own experience as a once debt-ridden law school grad to help attorneys across the country achieve their version of financial success.

Remember that legal writing class you took in law school that told you to reverse the way you thought about writing? Start with the conclusion, then tell us the facts that support that. The same thing goes with your finances. Start with what you want to achieve, and then we'll build the way to get there.

We don't charge planning fees and all of our meetings are done virtually at a time that works for you! Who said financial plans need to be 60 pages and include jargon that you won't understand? Our one page Financial Brief allocates your money into three buckets of Focus, Flexibility, and Future.

Why does a lawyer need financial planning?

A legal career is an investment. Attending law school is a financial commitment as are the years required to build a fruitful practice.

Successful attorneys spend most of their time practicing law, serving clients, and growing their businesses. It is not unusual for an attorney to work 60-80 hours per week. The level of dedication required of lawyers leaves little time to analyze, assess, and prepare a financial plan that addresses the wealth building cornerstones.

Limited time is just one of the many reasons Power Forward Group offers specialized financial planning for lawyers. We approach financial management with a multifaceted philosophy, team effort, and a keen focus on building generational wealth and long-term financial security for lawyers.

From Complicated to Comprehensive

Have you heard the phrase, “more money, more problems?” Sure, high earnings are good problems to have, but the truth is, the greater your earnings, the more complex your financial responsibilities can become.

As an attorney, you will continually increase your income by taking a variety of investment avenues. Power Forward Group will not only help you define your financial goals, but we will also guide you every step of the way, building an individualized wealth plan for you and those most important to you.

Power Forward’s consultants specialize in financial planning for business owners and wealth management for lawyers and executive earners. We are prepared to navigate complex tax laws, intricate retirement plans, and the fluctuating cash flow legal professionals face.

The Cornerstones of Wealth

There are broad categories in wealth management referred to as wealth building cornerstones. At Power Forward, we blend cutting-edge technology and the financial expertise of our team to aggregate your accounts and provide you round-the-clock access to your financial portfolio and wealth outlook.


One way to grow your financial portfolio is by making smart investments. As one of the leading wealth management companies in NYC, we astutely analyze investment strategies designed with your individual financial goals in mind.

As a Power Forward Group client, you are assigned a team of two wealth specialists, each highly proficient in financial planning for lawyers. We will support your financial growth with recommendations for short-term cash reserves and long-term investment strategy.

Retirement and Succession

Though it may seem impossible to imagine right now, there will come a day when you are ready to step back from your legal career and enjoy a slower-paced life. Whether you dream of fly fishing in Montana or simply spending more time with your family, we can help.

Financial planning for business owners and legal professionals includes a strong exit plan and succession strategy. This can include a blend of selling or dividing the practice, a 401k, a pension plan, and many other more retirement strategies.

Our team will work with you to make planning for the future stress-free.

Banking, Credit, & Lending

Student loans, mortgages, and business loans are all part of the bigger financial picture. With a deep understanding of what it takes to build generational wealth, we incorporate these components into your personalized financial plan.

Tax Strategy

As a lawyer, you are in a highly taxed profession. We offer more than just financial planning for lawyers. We work with you to reduce tax impact and utilize smart tax strategies from ensuring you are taking advantage of deductions to setting you up with a tax-saving retirement plan.

Whether you are an independent attorney, a personal injury lawyer, or a partner in a lucrative firm, we will design a compliant tax plan to complement your financial portfolio.

We Plan for the Future

You are a legal expert. Let our team of financial experts help you plan for the future.

Wherever you are geographically or in your legal career, we are prepared to help. We provide financial planning nationwide for lawyers who are in their first year of practice, attorneys nearing retirement, small firm owners, associate attorneys, and everyone in between.

Just as you are your client’s advocate, Power Forward Group is your financial advocate.

We are here to provide smart investment recommendations, a tax reduction strategy, and a comprehensive financial plan. Call Power Forward Group today at (646) 647-2150 or reach out to us online to schedule an appointment for an introductory call.

Do you have a minimum account size?

No, we believe our clients are our IPOs; as you grow, we grow. As an attorney, we understand your career path and growth potential. How are you supposed to build wealth if no one's there to guide you?

I'm a very busy person, how long does the planning process take?

Firstly, all of our meetings are held virtually via Zoom. As such, we are able to cater our 'hours' to when works best for you. The initial call takes less than a half hour, we give you some homework gathering information, then the collaborative planning meeting takes about 45 minutes. We strive to keep things simple.

I already have an advisor, can I still work with you?

Yes of course. While we are a holistic planning team and will need to understand all the moving parts of your finances before we're able to make a recommendation, we understand that you may already have relationships in place. Our conversations and advice are complimentary, and we'd love the opportunity to give you our perspective.

How do I know I can trust you guys?

To solidify the confidentiality of all of our clients and their information, we enter into a Non-Disclosure Agreement, signed by both parties prior to obtaining any personal data. Trust is the basis of any strong relationship and we believe that our work will speak for itself, having your best interest at heart all the time.

I'm not quite ready to start working with an advisor, but can we stay in touch?

Absolutely! Subscribe below to our monthly e-newsletter The PFG Perspective. Don't worry, we aren't going to spam you.

I'm interested in speaking with your group, what are the next steps?

First, let our team know that you'd to chat. Someone from our team will reach out shortly to compare calendars and find a time that works best. You have the option to complete a quick questionnaire that will give us a better idea, from a bird's eye perspective, of your finances prior to or after that initial call.
