Asset Protection Lawyers and Asset Protection Attorneys

Help with Asset Protection

Asset protection planning involves the dissection and application of a handful of techniques that can help protect your assets from claims of future creditors. These methods, sometimes referred to as wealth management, were created to deter potential creditors from taking action. Additionally, if a creditor chooses to take action, the use of asset protection techniques can discourage them, typically by making it very hard for them to seize your assets or collect judgments against you.

When presented with a case involving a significant amount, an asset protection attorney will establish a number of partnerships (such as limited partnerships), living trusts, or offshore entities to protect your assets. Consequently, a potential creditor may recognize that it would be worthless to pursue a claim, or settle for a significantly lesser amount. Because there is a very thin line between legal asset protection and fraud, anyone interested in asset protection is advised to speak with an attorney experienced in asset protection law for assistance.

Do I Need Asset Protection?

Many mistakenly believe that only the significantly wealthy need asset protection.

Particularly with the current state of the economy, more people are enlisting the help of an asset protection lawyer to ensure their assets are safeguarded.

Typically, an individual needs asset protection if he or she is:

  • Facing a lawsuit
  • Employed in a profession with a high degree of liability (lawyer, doctor, real estate investor, etc.)
  • Facing a potential tax or similar government liability
  • About to accumulate significant wealth, such as an inheritance or investment
  • Struggling to make their mortgage or loan payments

Asset protection can be helpful to a wide range of individuals for a multitude of reasons.
