Thaddeus (Ted) N. Toal, Jr.
Ted began his career with a well known Wall Street firm where he provided financial planning for clients. However, he quickly realized that there was an inherent conflict between the goals of the firm and the goals of his clients.

This realization led to the creation of Ted's former firm, Toal & Associates, LLC.
As a senior partner of Rockwood Wealth Management, Ted takes a comprehensive approach to wealth management. He sees his role as helping people make well-informed decisions in their financial life and investment plans-providing them with greater financial independence, peace of mind and security.
