As co-founder of Welgaard, Jerry strives to provide a wide range of services, including tax planning for businesses and related owners, estate and succession planning, and business purchases and sales.  His primary focus when working with existing clients is keeping all offered advice in line with what he knows about the client’s future, family and business goals.  For new clients, he listens first to learn the client’s background and family history before any advice is given.  He always gives at least one hour of free time to listen to their life story.  He enjoys hearing positive feedback from long time clients that appreciate the help we have given them over their careers.
