No more guessing about whether or not it will all come together, just confidence that you’re in good hands—because we can see the big picture.
How We Help You
We act as one single contact for coordinating all your financial activities.
We will guide our families through the laws, restrictions, and tax implications of cryptocurrency.
Taxes are one of the most significant expenses you will face as a physician. We assist you in taking advantage of all relevant tax credits and deductions.
As a physician, it’s not a matter of if you will be involved in a medical lawsuit for malpractice, but when. We help you reduce the possibility of losing your assets.
Your family CFO helps you support your most important charities and causes in a more sustainable and impactful way.
Physicians, after years of working, have very complex estate plans, more than the majority of people from other professions. As your CFO, we help you achieve your desires and pass on your legacy.
Your virtual CFO ensures you are mentally and financially prepared for the journey into a meaningful, happy retirement.
Derrick explained to me that he takes all the information that he requests and spends a lot of time looking it over. He then came back to me with recommendations to reduce my expenses and my taxes. Nobody has ever taken the time to review my situation like that before.
M.R. Invasive Cardiologist
Due to the very few families that Derrick advises, he is able to give me the time I need to get into the weeds of our family's affluence, which no other advisor has ever done. He found holes in our situation and had recommendations to help address the issues he discovered.
J.S. C-Level executive
Handwerk Consulting team was able to use their network of high-level advisors and help me set up the correct corporate entity and manage the process with the attorney so it was very easy for me.
Derrick was able to look at my entire financial picture and give me a realistic opinion of the possibility of me running out of money in retirement.
As a physician, unjustly losing my assets is a concern. Derrick was able to incorporate asset protection into my situation, which did not cost me any money.
A.L. Orthopedic Surgeon
Derrick looks at my situation and is proactive with planning on possibilities that happen in the future. Also, whenever I call, he picks up his cell phone and answers my questions.
E.H. Owner of Cosmetic Clinic
Derrick worked with my accountant to find assets which I could put in a donor-advised fund, while my accountant would not have taken the extra time or initiative to investigate my alternatives.
Derrick has given me better service and advice than the family office I worked with previously, and they charged triple of what Derrick charges.
P.R. Physician private practice
Derrick only works with families like mine. He has a lot of knowledge on how to work with affluent families and find ways to improve our financial situation.
