Can I protect my assets without putting them offshore?
There are several tried and true mechanisms for placing assets and to safe havens within the United States. Often this involves choosing states that provide for confidentiality, and whose laws are weighted in favor of debtors rather than creditors. Any good asset protection lawyer will understand those various options. The more important question involved in domestic asset protection planning is the circumstances that are motivating the planning, the timing of the proposed planning, and the resources and motivation of the potential creditor body. Any lawyer who professes to do asset protection planning and who does not “drill down” to obtain a thorough understanding of those circumstances is not likely to put you in a position of protecting your assets
