Who Do You Trust with Your Trusts? Are Your Assets Protected?Posted on March 19, 2012 by
This month on Monday, March 26 at 6:30 PM, at the Atlanta REIA West Subgroup*, we have an incredible opportunity for you to learn the basics of asset protection from one of the country’s foremost experts on the subject! We are very proud to host Atlanta’s own Attorney Doug Shaddix, founder of Wealth Preservation Solutions, LLC. which specializes in helping clients avoid probate, minimize their tax burden, and maximize their privacy by utilizing trusts and entities that assist you in your asset protection. Attorney Shaddix will be sharing his knowledge and expertise on this very timely and important subject. Why is this so important? Here’s why…
If you have significant assets of any type, you are a target for a lawsuit. You need to know more about legally protecting your assets. Enjoy greater privacy, limits on your personal liability, as well as tax benefits through the use of entities such as LLC’s, corporations and trusts.
In today’s litigious society, you need only one person unhappy with your business, one injured tenant, one disgruntled individual to ruin all that you have worked for by going to a plaintiff’s lawyer to see how they can get to everything you own. If you are sued, you could lose your business, its equipment and vehicles, your personal automobiles, your home, your rental properties . . . anything that you own in your own name.
Sounds pretty scary, right? Well it can be if you haven’t taken the time to educate yourself on how you can take necessary steps to protect yourself from predators, creditors, and the like. What you can do to protect yourself and your assets isn’t terribly complicated, its just not common knowledge. It’s privileged information generally reserved for the extremely wealthy and famous. IF they take advantage of these strategies in order to protect themselves, it only makes good sense for you as an investor to explore and then implement them in your own life, doesn’t it?
Because of the current excitement, concern, and confusion surrounding the use of Trusts that has spread throughout Atlanta REIA like wildfire, Attorney Shaddix has agreed to go over the basics of Trusts. He’ll be sharing with us what we need to know in order to best protect ourselves as real estate investors from our inherent “occupational hazards”. Using Trusts in our business is important, and the proper use of Trusts can make all the difference in the world when comes to protecting your assets.
Join us as we get the inside knowledge about using Trusts properly as an incredible asset protection tool. If you are planning to build any wealth at all for yourself and your family, or you already have, this is MUST KNOW information for you.
