DoctorEvery year millions of people are sued. It is estimated that a new lawsuit is filed every 30 seconds in the U.S., and there are over 100 million lawsuits currently in the court system. Some survive these lawsuits, however, many do not. Some lose everything, including their homes, businesses, and retirement savings. It is a tragedy to see people left bankrupt as a result of a lawsuit, especially when these tragedies could have been avoided if these people were structured properly. With the number of lawsuits and the size of judgments on the rise, it is vital to have your professional and personal assets structured for lawsuit protection. The American Society for Asset Protection teaches professionals how to protect 100% of their assets from lawsuits. The strategies we teach also prevent lawsuits by teaching professionals how to make themselves so unattractive to a plaintiff attorney that they will never pursue a lawsuit against them. Once your assets are properly structured, you will have financial peace of mind that comes from knowing that you are protected from losing in a lawsuit what you have worked a lifetime to create. The following are a few of the items that can develop into a lawsuit:
