Why Verus?


“It has been my passion to educate those that are unaware of the benefits available through cooperative planning.” – Mike Haffling

Each client has different goals and objectives, but ultimately the utilization of the full spectrum of financial tools as well as legal and accounting services remains necessary in order to create a successful and effective financial strategy. I’ve come across many people that use these services, but all too often they don’t understand the opportunities available when using them cohesively.

State administered licenses

Mike, a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, holds State administered licenses in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Colorado. He has earned numerous accolades from multiple organizations, honoring his dedication and performance in assisting his clientele with some of their most difficult and important financial decisions.
