Mr. Wall is a frequent speaker on the topics of special needs planning, estate planning, taxation, and trust administration.

He said, “After spending almost 20 years at big bank trust companies, I wanted to join a company where I could truly effect significant change in the lives of my clients. Being the Director of Fiduciary Services at True Link will allow me to make a tangible difference in one of the most underserved, yet most deserving populations in our country. True Link is a true leader in the industry, so I’m proud to be a part of this amazing team and look forward to shaping the future of financial services for the people we serve.”
