Vero Beach Asset Protection Attorney

Are you in need of legal advice on how best to protect your nest egg from creditors?  If so, the asset protection attorneys of The White Law Group can help.

Asset protection is the process by which one employs strategies and legal structures designed to shield your assets from the reach of creditors, business partners, the I.R.S. and ex-spouses. An asset protection lawyer will create a well-designed asset protection plan as a protective fort around the client’s estate and guards’ family wealth from external creditor attack. The most effective asset protection plans contain multiple layers of protection, so that even if a creditor can defeat one protective device there are other impediments to the creditor’s attack. Working with an experienced Vero Beach asset protection attorney will help ensure your assets will be fully protected.

Asset protection is therefore a vital part of any estate plan and a well-prepared plan will protect you from exposure to judgments arising out of lawsuits. Asset protection does not involve hiding assets. The techniques used by the asset protection attorneys of The White Law Group are fully within the boundaries of the law.

Some of the most common asset protection devices are as follows:

  1. The Florida Homestead
  2. Florida Irrevocable Trusts
  3. The Family Limited Partnership
  4. The Limited Liability Company
  5. Joint Tenancy Property
  6. Annuities
  7. R.A.’s
  8. Life Insurance
  9. 401 (K) and Federal Sponsored Retirement Plans
  10. Offshore Corporations and Trusts
  11. Florida Corporations (In limited situations)

Asset protection is especially important for physicians and other professionals who have exposure of their assets to lawsuits and large jury verdicts.

Vero Beach Probate Litigation Attorney

Are you in need of a probate litigation lawyer in the Vero Beach area?  If so, the attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help.

Our Vero Beach estate litigation attorneys represent clients who are involved with probate litigation throughout the Treasure Coast and Vero Beach area.  This representation can include a wide variety of topics, including aging, disability and death. Frequently, probate litigation includes cases involving wills, trusts, estates, joint bank accounts, gifts, and other disputes that can arise when a loved one passes away. If you have an estate, a variety of assets, a property portfolio, bank accounts and gifts, you could be likely to be engaged in probate litigation.

When seeking representation, it is important to know what probate litigation means. Probate law mandates that a probate court will identify the assets of the deceased, decide on the payment of taxes and other incidental expenses, and distribute the property among the legal heirs as mentioned in the deceased’s will.

Probate litigation is one of the most contested areas of law in Florida. Our probate litigation attorneys work one-on-one with our clients in Vero Beach and throughout Florida to ensure that your rights are fairly represented when identifying and allocating assets in the event of a death.

Essentially, probate litigation is what occurs after a will has been contested, which can happen for a variety of reasons. The most common reasons that a will is contested are:

  • Some of the beneficiaries are not given an inventory of the property
    • Claims of undue influence
    • One of the beneficiaries enjoying the full benefits
    • Guardianships and conservatorships
    • Beneficiary failing to do his or her fiduciary duties
    • Details about the creditors not disclosed
    • Dispute over the personal representative

Probate litigation is a complex area of law and can involve difficult matters with loved ones and family members. However, having legal counsel to make sure your interests are best represented can help protect yourself and your properties. It is our job to help you recover the assets that are owed to you, and we will walk you through every step of the process.

To speak with a probate litigation attorney, please call The White Law Group at 772/242-9330.
