About the Author
Roccy DeFrancesco, JD, CAPP, CMP

At heart, I’m a consumer advocate. By training, I’m an attorney (J.D. from Valparaiso University School of Law and licensed to practice in Michigan) and commercial pilot (B.S. degree from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University). I fell into my current role as an educator and mentor for advisors (CPAs, EAs, accountants, attorneys, financial planners, and insurance agents) by accident back in 2000. Since 2000, I’ve devoted myself to detailed research on topics, products, and concepts that affect a person’s wealth (positively or negatively). From that research, I’ve written a number of books and been a lecturer for advisor and consumer events.
