Many of you recall that Doug was on our Attorney Panel at our Atlanta REIA Main Meeting. Doug is back this month to talk all about asset protection, estate planning and buying with entities such as trusts, LLCs, corporations and more!

If you have significant assets of any type, you are a target for a lawsuit!  You need to know more about asset protection.  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.
