           - Federal Judge Learned Hand, Helvering vs. Gregory, 69 F.2nd 809, (1935)



What is Asset Protection?


Asset protection is planning to protect your property from legal problems and taxes during your life and after your death.   Asset protection generally refers to strategies employed (e.g., trusts) to protect your wealth from creditors and predators.  It’s also a set of legal mechanisms and strategies designed to help you exercise control over your business, your personal property, and your legacy from beyond the grave.
