Rest in Peace Nicholas Zapoticky 

It is with our deepest sorrow that we inform you of the death of one of our founding partners, Nicholas Zapoticky,
who passed away peacefully Friday, Nov. 26, 2021 surrounded by his loving family.

In October 2013, along with Chris Foder, Brian Dougher, and Ian Hastings, Nick helped Meridian Financial Associates
open its doors for business. Nick focused on corporate and business strategies, and throughout his career he helped
countless clients and families immeasurably. 

Nick was a man who always put his family first. He was a proud husband, father, brother and friend who loved tradition. 
He is survived by his wife of 31 years, Donna and children, Stephen, Ryan and Brady Zapoticky; along with his beloved sisters 
and many nieces, nephews and friends who he cherished.

The entire Meridian family will be mourning the loss of a role model, friend, and confidant for years to come. Nick was known
for giving back to his community, and in his memory, please consider paying it forward this holiday season and spreading
kindness. For more information on his memorial service and how to support his family, click the button below.

AREAS OF PRACTICE:

ASSET PROTECTION

ASSET PROTECTION

The world is full of threats. Lawsuit, job loss, death and disability are just a few of the risks we face on a daily basis. With consistent competition for your dollars, we help you prioritize and protect that which is the foundation for your financial life, cash flow.

RETIREMENT PLANNING

RETIREMENT PLANNING

The way traditional methods promote retirement planning is to hoard your nest egg and sprinkle off some interest each and every year with little if any margin for error. Meridian focuses on utilization of assets so you can enjoy your golden years without worry.

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT

You can invest just about anywhere today. Our value is simple. We help manage our clients' behavior from making bad decisions, build tax-efficient diversified portfolios and implement low cost investments.

Transferring your wealth to your family and charities is profoundly personal. Helping design your estate plan to pass your wealth to who you want, when you want, how you want with tax and fee avoidance is a passion we have.

BUSINESS STRATEGIES

The startup and management of small business is a fierce frontier that requires financial advice from advisors who are deeply entrenched in the particularities of legal, tax and structures that drive business value. Our firm gives you a holistic approach, so your company can get the best competitive advantage.

EXECUTIVE AND GROUP BENEFITS

EXECUTIVE AND GROUP BENEFITS

Hiring and retaining high-quality employees is one of the most difficult challenges a growing business faces. Creating compelling benefits and compensation packages for your prized people is an art.
