Asset Protection Attorney - Selecting the Right One for You
Asset protection attorney selection is a very important and sometimes tricky task if you don't know where to start. If you select the wrong asset protection attorney you may be setting yourself up for a major catastrophe. The problem with finding the right asset protection attorney is that most attorneys know next to nothing about proper asset protection. Asset protection is a complicated specialization that demands your attorney know all about taxes, trusts, wills, Limited Liability Companies, Corporations, estate planning, personal corporations, and on and on. Your average attorney will not have the experience or knowledge to do an adequate job. To find the best attorney for the job you may even need to look out of your state. Don't worry, an experienced asset protection attorney will know your state laws and will be able to work with you. When you're first looking at what attorney to hire you must ask them several questions before hiring them. For example how much experience do they have? How long have they been doing asset protection and is that what they specialize in? Do they offer a free consultation before you pay anything? Do they know not only all about asset protection but taxes as well? Do they work with people out of state and are they knowledgeable about your state laws?
These are just a few questions you should consider when choosing an asset protection attorney. After you have selected a candidate you should ask them for a free consultation before you hire them. This will give you a good idea about what is needed for your situation and how much it will cost to complete a proper asset protection plan. One more important issue to know about is that you should be hiring an attorney and not an "asset protection specialist." You need to hire someone who is currently licensed to practice law and not some average Joe who read a book about asset protection once. Hiring an attorney also gives you certain privileges like the client-attorney confidentiality that an asset protection specialist cannot offer.
