STRUCTURING AN ASSET PROTECTION PLAN

Asset protection is considered in almost every facet of our law practice, and it is a large part of responsible estate planning. Asset protection encompasses several different goals: to protect existing assets from creditors, to ensure the orderly distribution of your estate upon death, to minimize estate taxes, and to protect an inheritance so it cannot be lost in a lawsuit or a divorce proceeding.
At The Law Offices of Kennedy & Jackson, our attorneys have spent decades developing successful asset protection strategies for both individual and business clients. Both of our asset protection lawyers are board-certified in estate planning and probate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and we take professional pride in our ability to provide clear explanations of complex legal and financial concepts. We believe our clients need to truly understand all of their options before they can make the best asset protection plan for their circumstances.
DIFFERENT TOOLS TO USE FOR ASSET PROTECTION
It is critically important for your asset protection adviser to have a complete understanding of the wide range of legal and financial tools available to meet your goals regarding protection of your assets. At The Law Offices of Kennedy & Jackson, we work closely with our clients’ financial advisers to make sure the asset protection instruments are chosen correctly and built securely.
These tools include: family limited partnerships, family trusts, real estate trusts, IRA inheritance trusts, offshore asset protection trusts,life insurance trusts, spendthrift trusts, limited liability companies, asset segregation, leases, employment contracts and homestead exemptions.
ASSET PROTECTION FOR LICENSED PROFESSIONALS — FOR BOTH YOURSELF AND YOUR HEIRS
Licensed professionals are often at risk for large malpractice judgments, such as medical malpractice, legal malpractice or accounting malpractice. Even if you are properly insured, you could be personally liable. With effective asset protection, you can feel confident that your assets will not be seized by court order or other sanction imposed against you.
PRUDENT LEGAL ADVICE TO ENSURE NONFRAUDULENT LEGAL ADVICE
At The Law Offices of Kennedy & Jackson, we take special care to make sure our clients’ asset transfers and other asset protection plans comply with all laws against fraudulent transfer, including the Texas Fraudulent Transfer Act.
