Michalek Brothers aligned with LPL in 2002 so we could serve a broad array of investors – both individuals and institutions – with investment portfolios ranging in assets from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars.

Michalek Brothers offer financial strategies suited to each client’s need. We offer fee based accounts which align the interests of both the client and the consultant.

LPL Financial, the nation’s largest independent broker-dealer*, provides Michalek Brothers and their clients an efficient, self-clearing trading system and an extensive platform including a wide variety of investment managers.

LPL does not own any proprietary investment products.

The LPL Financial SIPC Membership provides account protection up to a
maximum of $500,000 per customer, of which $250,000 may be claims for cash.
An explanatory brochure is available at
Additionally, through London Insurers, LPL Financial accounts have additional
securities protection to cover the net equity of customer accounts up to an overall
aggregate firm limit of $575,000,000 subject to conditions and limitations.
The account protection applies when an SIPC member firm fails financially and is
unable to meet obligations to securities clients, but it does not protect against
losses from the rise and fall in the market value of investments.
