Your mortgage is a real estate investment transaction, but your home’s real value is found in the security it provides you and your family; human, as well as financial equity built over time. Likewise, the full value of your small business can’t be found exclusively on an annual profit and loss statement, but more so in the quality of life it affords. Mr. McCauley's Asset Protection Workshops and attorney-assisted strategies will help you design a road map to security based upon your unique needs, all supported by established case law designed to protect what you value most.
More and more people are using the legal system to deprive others of their life's work. Over 80 million new lawsuits are filed in the United States every year, many of which are frivolous or settled for sums greater than the actual liability. That's one lawsuit every thirty seconds! The U.S. has 5% of the world's population and 80% of the world's lawyers. 94% of all lawsuits in the world happen right here in the U.S. And it's getting worse. According to the American Bar Association, there are close to 1.2 Million lawyers in practice in America. That's over one attorney for every 400 men, women and children! Imagine that many hungry lawyers looking for clients with a reason to sue?
Without a massive overhaul of our legal system, the risk and potential liability is not going to decline. In fact, it has steadily increased over the last few decades. You do not need to be rich to engage in asset protection planning. We all have assets worth protecting. Whether your home equity is $300,000 or $3,000,000, the emotional attachment and the need to protect it is the same.
Responsibility, in terms of financial security, means taking pro-active measures that safeguard your (and your family's) financial future. Moreover, many consider it to be your legal and moral obligation.
Life, health and auto insurance are a few of society's expectations under the "responsibility" rule, but true financial security -- the ability to weather a lawsuit or other legal/tax/property threat -- requires the professional assistance of a qualified asset protection planner long before a threat takes shape. When the "unplanned" happens, is your financial security well defended? A few hours of your time now with an asset protection planner could spare you a lifetime of regret and unnecessary financial loss.
