Meet Lemar Williams
Founder & President
For almost two decades as a financial professional, Lemar Williams has dedicated himself to helping others grow their wealth potential. He firmly believes that every person has the potential to create the type of wealth that can impact more than one lifetime.
Before founding Traditions Wealth & Legacy Planning, he worked as an investment professional for some of the largest and most powerful financial institutions in the world. He realized that despite the sustained financial success of these institutions, many individuals and families have not been able to sustain their own version of financial success over multiple generations.
Lemar Williams started Traditions because he believed it was time for a different approach. He is convicted in a belief that families and individuals can create the type of legacy that rivals the longevity of successful institutions. His philosophy is to invest into every person’s greatest asset, which is themselves and the individuals they care most about.
