Tommy Oliphint, Founder of One Advocate Group Legacy has focused his career on creating revolutionary processes that equip families to make conscious decisions and strengthen generational gaps.

After 25 years engaging clients and working in financial planning, Tommy discovered clients would be most successful with a deeper understanding of wealth, and what truly makes them wealthy. He developed a revolutionary multi-generational planning process, rooted in advancing and protecting wealth for generations. Out of this planning model, One Advocate Group Legacy was launched in 2005.

Tommy has traveled the United States speaking about the One Advocate Group Legacy revolutionary process from the Hankamer School of Business at Baylor University, to McAfee & Taft, and the Steve Savants Let’s Get Down to Business program.
