It is important to stop and take this long term view for a few moments to make some important choices today.

    Are You Following the Best Asset Protection Planning Rules?

    in Legal

    Asset protection planning is all about taking chips off the table in good times, so that you still can walk away from the table a winner no matter what happens in bad times. Those who worry the most about asset protection are those who are the most likely to get sued, but average folks often get caught up in difficult situations, and thus if you have something to protect then the topic of asset protection should at least cross your mind.


     


    Join Bill and Rick to discuss exactly when and how you can best maximize your protection against unwanted creditors and lawsuits.
