Since 1993 Joanne Holman Stine has provided fiduciary, bookkeeping and problem solving services for the elderly and disabled.

What is a Fiduciary and how can we help?

A Fiduciary is a person who manages the relationship of a trust, special needs trust, conservatorship, estate or problematic personal or financial issues with one or more parties. Typically they will manage the lifestyle or assets on behalf of a person who can't do so themselves or has some reason why it would be better for someone else to provide professional management. This person needs to be unwavering and beyond reproach in the duty of this management.

At Stine & Associates, we have more than 25 years experience helping people. We take the time to sit down with new clients to understand their situation and provide guidance as to how we can help. As needs change, we meet with the parties to keep clients appraised of the state of affairs, to make them feel personally and financially safe and sound.

Whether it's an individual who can no longer take care of their own finances, someone who needs special attention to help have their personal issues and finances managed, or a decedent's estate, we can offer the help and support to give the client what they need.
