What Are Asset Protection Attorneys?
Asset protection attorneys generally focus on wealth preservation and estate planning. They use legal strategies to help protect assets – from your home to your business to your financial investments – in a variety of situations.
At Bower Law Firm, we not only help individuals plan for the future and protect themselves via estate planning, we also assist home and business owners protect themselves and recover financially when dealing with property damage insurance claims made after natural disasters.
Home and property damage from wind, rain, hail, fire, and flood can be emotionally and financially devastating. Although most people feel they are adequately covered by their business or homeowner’s insurance, insurance providers often look for any reason to deny or underpay a claim.
Experienced lawyers can help with the daunting process of pushing back on the insurance company after a denial or lowball offer. We will help you get back on solid footing so that you can rebuild.
Preparing for the future is an important part of asset protection. For individuals and families, Bower Law Firm LLC can assess your situation and determine the right estate plan to protect all of your assets. We specifically enjoy assisting blended families as the planning can be quite complex, requiring an in-depth asset protection strategy.
What Is Asset Protection?
Asset protection is a term that relates to securing and insuring property or belongings in a person’s estate. A person’s assets can be protected in different ways, for example through the use of an asset protection trust and insurance.
With proper asset protection in place, you can reduce the risk of losing everything and establish a legacy for your loved ones.
Since your business, home, or other property is also an asset, at Bower Law Firm we believe insurance breach of contract is an important part of asset protection. In cases of severe property damage by fire, flood, storm, or the like, we will take on the insurance company and help you get the settlement you need.
What Are Common Asset Protection Strategies?
There are many asset protection strategies available. Asset protection strategies are a way for individuals to protect their assets from probate, lawsuits, and insufficient insurance settlements after a catastrophic event.
We offer the following asset protection strategies:
- Estate planning to protect your home and other property from probate and mismanagement
- Breach of contract or insurance bad faith litigation to help you recover after a catastrophic property damage event and denied insurance claim
- Mediation to help both parties reach an acceptable conclusion and avoid long and expensive court battles
These are just some of the strategies you can use to protect your assets and your future.
If you’re concerned about your future, talk to an asset protection attorney to discuss your options.
What Does an Asset Protection Lawyer Do?
A good asset protection lawyer will help you identify the best ways to protect your assets and then implement those strategies so that your wealth is safe.
An asset protection lawyer can help you take the following steps:
- Name beneficiaries for insurance policies, trusts, bank accounts, retirement funds, etc.
- Transfer ownership of assets into asset protection trusts or other entities that will shield them from creditors.
- Fight the insurance providers for you if your business or home is damaged and your claim has been denied.
If you need a legal strategy to provide protection for your retirement accounts and other assets today, contact an asset protection attorney from Bower Law Firm LLC to create a solid estate plan.
How Do You Find Asset Protection Law Firms?
A quick internet search will bring up a lot of results for asset protection attorneys, and it may be difficult to find the right firm from such a vast pool.
Finding the right asset protection law firm can be a daunting task. There are many factors to consider, including:
- The size of the firm
- The experience level of the attorneys
- Whether asset protection attorneys have an outstanding reputation
- The costs associated with using them as your legal counsel
- The location of the firm
- Your specific needs, whether for business or personal, after an adverse event such as natural disaster or health scare in the family, etc.
Regardless of the complexity of your case, it’s never too late to protect your assets. Consult a reputable law firm to ensure that your assets are safe and can be passed on to your loved ones
How Much Does Hiring an Asset Protection Lawyer Cost?
Asset protection is a form of legal planning that can also help with probate, estate administration, and property damage insurance claims.
The cost of hiring an asset protection lawyer will vary depending on the lawyer’s experience and reputation. The complexity of your case and the type of plan chosen will also affect the expense.
It is important to remember that personal asset protection costs money. It can, however, also save you money in the long run if you are sued or suffer property damage.
Should I Protect My Assets?
There are many reasons why you should protect your assets. The least of which is that the potential cost of not protecting your assets mitigates the expense of doing so.
If you are the victim of a natural disaster in which your business, church, condo building, or home is destroyed and your insurance claim is denied – there is hope. We can fight the insurance company and help you get the money you need to rebuild.
If you are facing changing life circumstances and realize now is the time to develop an asset protection plan for your family, there is an answer for that as well. We can create the documentation needed to secure your assets for the future.
At the Bower Law Firm, we see the importance of employing asset protection strategies and have a variety of strategies for doing so in our pocket.
We value a strong attorney-client relationship with each client – you can count on us. Call for a free consultation today!
