    Frequently Asked Questions

    1. Why is asset protection important?

    You’re at risk of losing your personal assets and business to many, including 

    • The unforeseeable event, accidents, divorce, illness etc
    • Creditors can be predators when you pass away
    • Beneficiaries and family members sometimes make mistakes handling estates unless everything is set in stone 

    Estate Planning and asset protection can help you evade unexpected losses.  Also, there’s reputation damage. Ensure that you and your family do not have to undergo any of it.  When we pass away without a trust our probate is public record.
