You may also wish to search under IDS. It is affiliated with American Express and many of the "financial planners" operate under that name.

Over the course of two years I went to two free meetings.

The first advisor was seemed knowledgeable and admitted that my current planning had me going well; meaning that he would have loved to have me for a client but understood why I did not see that he could add enough "value" to justify the fees.
