Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier explains the specialized role of estate and asset protection attorneys, encourages anyone with assets to hire one and assures readers these attorneys are not just for the wealthy.
DECATUR, GA, April 30, 2019: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on her law firm’s website entitled “What Is An Estate And Asset Protection Attorney And Why Do You Need One.” Ms. Collier educates readers about the growing need to have an estate and asset protection plan in place.
Collier states, “Tax season just ended which often creates a sense of anxiety in many.” She continues adding, “I often encourage my clients to use this time for an annual review of their asset protection plans to make sure any changes personally or professionally are still accurately reflected in their plan.”
“If you don’t have an estate and asset protection plan or attorney,” says Collier, “you may want to consider at least scheduling a consultation after you finish reading this article. And, I want to assure you that estate and asset protection attorneys are not just for the super wealthy.” She elaborates, “Even though the word ‘estate’ may conjure up images of extensive land in the country with a large house reminiscent of Downton Abbey, I assure you, even the humblest of abodes can constitute an ‘estate’.”
As Collier points out, “Today, an estate means the net worth of an individual alive or dead. In other words, it is the sum of a person’s assets, legal rights, interests and entitlements.” “In fact” says Collier, “the services of an asset protection attorney are indispensable for anyone who has worked hard to accumulate assets and wants to protect against unexpected lawsuits and to make sure the assets are appropriately distributed when the time comes.”
