I called him about recent changes to 412, and got on the subject of broker-dealers, and he lent so much of his time to inform me about making the right choice. He is a really great, personable colleague to people working in the financial services business.” November 3, 2008 Robert Thomas, Resident Insurance Producer, Independent Consulting

“Since first calling Lance, he has taught me more about all aspects of insurance, income tax nuances, and relatively unknown welfare benefit plans than I had learned in the years spent with other well-regarded experts who had been in the same field for over 30 years.
As a result, when Lance becomes a consultant to any company or individual they not only get the benefit of his immense knowledge, but they receive the knowledge of experts in any area of finance that will benefit the client. Lance will never say, "I don't know too much about that." Instead he will say, "Let me put you in touch with an expert who is knows more about that than anyone in the country." And he means it.

Letter to Lance Wallach from Ford Motor benefits Fri, 11 Jan 2008 Subject: VEBAs
Dear Mr. Wallach,
It as a pleasure speaking with you this afternoon. I appreciate the time you spent listening and the giving of your advice.
Next week, we, a small splinter union (IAM) within a large Ford Motor facility, at Cleveland Casting Plant will be negotiating our contract. This site is mostly represented by the UAW who have already consummated their contract with Ford Motor Company, and has accepted the VEBA option for their retirees. Their VEBA will be run by the UAW and whoever they decide to confide in to execute the health care benefit and the investments with the millions that Ford Motor will hand over to them, and then Ford will wash their hands of any more health care responsibilities.
Our I am negotiations start Jan. 14th. The small group of individuals that will be across the table from the experts representing Ford Motor, are comprised of a few elected people that are Pattern Maker/Machinist by trade. We have no one of any particular expertise in finance, healthcare, or investment. We are expected to come to terms with little, to no knowledge or leverage of the task set before us. We have 1300 people's lives that will be affected by these negotiations. It is a shame that the larger unions will not step up to the plate and help with the terms that we are faced with. Ford Motor will use this to their advantage to squeeze a few more dollars out of our pockets.
Thank you again for your generous contribution of foresight and knowledge to the concerns facing the American workers in this globalistic battle for the bottom line.
Sincerely, Mark A. Gwynn IAM Benefits Rep. Ford Motor Cleveland Casting Plant
