Jacob Stein specializes in structuring the ownership of your assets to make it difficult, or even impossible, for others to take them away. Creditors, plaintiffs, unhappy business partners, state and federal agencies - all can threaten those assets. Our asset protection planning can reduce, or even eliminate, those threats long before they appear. Our clients tell us that the peace of mind that asset protection brings is priceless.
An arm's-length cash sale is the best way to protect the residence (and the equity in the residence) because it is much easier to protect liquid assets (sale proceeds) than real estate. While this technique affords the best possible protection, it is also the most radical and may result in additional income taxes.
