with you not just for you.

Our dedicated team currently serve our clients across 22 states, with offices in California, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Texas, and Alabama.

...and if you were expecting a bunch of suits and stuffy photos, you won't find them here!  We learned a long time ago that success is achieved by hard work, a competent team, and rolling up our sleeves to get the job done.  At Staines Financial, our track record speaks for itself, and we spend our time working with you on what matters most, not what we're wearing.  We're real people, just like you.
