The house of everyone is to him as his castle and fortress, as well for his defence against injury and violence, as for his repose.
----Semayne’s Case, 5 Do.Rep.912, 77 Eng.Rep.194,195 (1604)
More and more people are using the legal system to deprive others of their life’s work. Over 19 million new lawsuits are filed in the United States every year. It is unfortunate, but true. We live in a highly litigious society and people today seem to sue one another over just about anything. Worse, you never really know what a jury might decide, regardless of how frivolous a lawsuit may appear. Even some of the people you love the most may need protection from themselves, such as those who suffer from drug or alcohol dependency, or who lack the maturity to handle a large inheritance on their own. All of this helps explain why Asset Protection Planning is such a rapidly growing area of the law and why it is so important for you to have a plan expertly tailored to your specific needs.
Business owners, professionals such as doctors, dentists, lawyers and accountants, and property owners in particular should be aware of the risk associated with conducting their business, practicing in their respective fields, and taking responsibility for others.
Asset Protection is working with clients to implement proven, legally-sound strategies that will help preserve their wealth and safeguard their assets.
Insurance alone does not always adequately protect against all of these threats. We help clients protect their wealth by building a castle trust for loved ones.
