Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier reveals that 3 lawsuits are filed every minute in America and that most of those are people trying to get at other people’s money, which is a good enough reason to have an asset protection plan in place at all times.
DECATUR, GA, April 5, 2018: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on her law firm’s website entitled “Protecting Your Assets in The Land Of The Litigious,” in which Ms. Collier points out that “many people know how to make money, but few know how to protect it.”
Collier writes, “Did you know that a new lawsuit is filed every twenty seconds in America?” She continues adding, “We live in a highly litigious society. The fact is that most of the lawsuits that are filed have absolutely nothing to do with right and wrong. The majority of lawsuits filed are predicated on the desire of one party to extract wealth from another party. And, unfortunately while many people know how to make money, few know how to protect it from the greed of others.”
“You devote your life to building up wealth and acquiring assets to make life more comfortable for yourself as you get older and to leave something to your heirs,” says Collier. With that she asks, “Don’t you believe that owe it to yourself to take some reasonable steps to protect those assets?” And, she poses, “Are you aware of certain risks you face which could cause you to lose all you have worked for if you do not legally protect your assets?”
According to Collier, “The importance of asset protection cannot be overstated, and the need to protect assets should not only be a concern for people of a certain age. Risks are everywhere and can affect people in all walks of life.” Collier lists four reasons, one of which is lawsuits, that put assets at risk in everyday life.
