Welcome to my which is published by the law firm of …………. This website supports the all-time best-selling book on the subject, “Proteccion de patrimonio” which is published by Asset Protection Publishing.

A great deal of information about asset protection planning is freely available over the internet. Most of it is simply wrong.

Similarly, numerous “asset protection gurus” tour the countryside touting various “bulletproof” schemes and strategies for debtors in distress, but their advice is usually about as likely to make things worse as to actually provide anything like real protection.

By contrast, the purpose of this website is twofold:

First, to debunk wrong or unrealistic information about asset protection planning.

Second, to provide a collection of articles and original source materials — such as the actual statutes and court opinions — for the use of other attorneys in advising their clients on these subjects.

Along the way, we hope to give insights as to what methods and legal positions can be effective for debtors, without getting them into further hot water.
