For fee only advisers with fiduciary responsibility, check these professional organizations:

PS the very best fiduciary is YOU when you are prepared to meet any financial adviser by reading some of the books suggested by this forum: http://www.bogleheads.org/wiki/Books:_R ... nd_Reviews

Hi parigi723,

Welcome to the forum. I follow Taylor's portfolio so I have no experience with using an advisor. However there have been tons of discussions on how or where to find a good one. Here is a recent one, pay extra attention to the links in LadyGeek's reply as those are very helpful resources:

Some of the advisors who frequent here include Allen Roth, Rick Ferri, Larry Swedroe and Bill Schultheis. You can google them easily.

HTH,
Faith
