Professional, courteous, and independent on your behalf.
We realize that the foundation to building client trust is achieved through personalized service.
LS Wealth Strategies LLC was founded in 2008 by Bill Saplicki and Woody Levinson. Sadly, Woody Levinson passed away in 2016 (see In Memoriam on the bottom of this page). The foundation of the practice was to incorporate professional business experience, financial knowledge and management skills into a company dedicated to investing and retirement income planning. LS Wealth Strategies LLC is a full service, strategy driven firm where each client is personally known. We work collaboratively to create the best strategy to pursue our client’s needs and goals.
