LaFleur & Godfrey is a SEC Registered Investment Advisor (RIA) based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The firm “traces its origins” to 1987, when James LaFleur and Richard Godfrey began serving individuals and families in the West Michigan area with professional money management services.
While we have grown organically throughout the years, in 2020, L&G acquired the assets of Gimbal Capital Management and in 2021, Investment Counsel, Inc. came on board.
Although both Jim and Rick have since retired, Dan VanTimmeren, John Koczara, and John Dice lead the firm with the same high standard and investment principles set forth over 30 years ago.
We invite you to meet the LaFleur & Godfrey team. We believe that you will soon realize why almost $800 million dollars in client assets is entrusted with us. Client centric investing solutions focused on YOU!

Spring 2021 Quarterly Commentary
It has been just over one year since our economy shut down due to the COVID pandemic. What a whirlwind year to say the least! Who would have thought in March 2020 that trillions of dollars of government support (both monetary and fiscal) would be needed to help our economy recover? Probably even more impressive is that Washington DC was actually able to provide the necessary support! As a result, the U.S. economy experienced arguably its greatest recovery of all time.
