Kramer Financial in Frederick, Md., epitomizes this goal of being that meaningful influence in their clients’ lives.

Kramer Financial is one of the few advisory practices in the country — and the only one licensed in all 50 states and Washington, D.C., according to the firm — that caters to the deaf community. The firm’s commitment to the deaf community stems from common experience: all of its advisors are deaf, as well.

Lee Kramer founded the practice in 1985, when he was affiliated with an insurance company. As the demand for his services began to grow, he was joined by Dave Frank in 1998, and later by Stephanie Summers and Danny Lacey. Mr. Lacey expanded the firm’s footprint west to Austin, TX.
