About Me

Hi, I'm Chris Berry. I help families plan, protect and preserve what is important to them by helping them create a Retirement & Legacy Blueprint.

As one of a handful of Certified Elder Law Attorneys™/CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERS™ in the state of Michigan, I help families protect their hard-earned assets, navigate retirement and leave their estate to their loved ones as efficiently and effectively as possible.

If we can put more money in your family's hands versus the IRS, Probate Court, or a Nursing Home, then I'm doing my job.

Our Retirement & Legacy Blueprint Process allows families to create:

✅ An Income Plan

✅ An Investment Plan

✅ A Tax Plan

✅ A Health Care Plan

✅ A Legacy Plan

About our Firm

At Castle Wealth Group, we believe in holistic financial planning to work toward clients’ needs. Building these well-thought-out strategies takes attention to five key areas: income planning, investment planning, tax planning, health care planning and legacy planning. Combined, planning for all five of these areas generates what we call The Retirement Game Plan.

We offer services in these three areas:

✅ Grow: Prepare for retirement by putting your hard-earned assets to work.

✅ Preserve: Protect the assets that can help you live the retirement you’ve always imagined.

✅ Give: Provide for the people and causes you care about the most.
