Asset protection is a very broad topic. This book’s approach is to cover the common asset protection topics from the perspective of having the reader to ultimately utilize professional advisors or is seeking an understanding of the need to hire professional guidance. This is not a self-help book.  It is meant to provide a clear understanding of the challenges facing asset protection while providing a concise explanation of the advice that should be expected to be covered by true professional advisors. 

Specifically, this book covers protecting assets from misuse by those who inherit; protecting assets from divorce; protecting assets from poor planning that requires one to spend down assets in order to qualify for benefits (i.e. Medicaid); protecting assets from creditors; protecting assets from unnecessary taxes; and utilizing assets for charitable causes instead of as an IRS donation.
