Are You Considering Creating and Asset Protection Trust?

If you need to protect your assets from overreaching creditors, you may want to hire a Silver Spring attorney to set up an asset protection trust for you. Such trusts are not permitted in every state and to be valid the trust must meet specific guidelines. An attorney skilled in creating these trusts can advise you on their legality and prepare a trust to meet your needs.

Trusts Can Shield Assets From Creditors

An asset protection trust is a device that separates a person’s liability from certain assets from his or her benefit from the assets. The trust serves to shield assets from creditors or from valuation in a divorce case. Because the protection of the trust makes it more difficult for creditors to collect debts, only a few states allow asset protection trusts. A lawyer familiar with such trusts, their benefits and limitations, can set up the trust within the parameters of the law and ensure your assets are protected.

How an Attorney Can Help

An attorney can often resolve your particular legal issue faster and better than trying to do it alone. A lawyer can help you navigate the legal system, while avoiding costly mistakes or procedural errors. You should seek out an attorney whose practice focuses on the area of law most relevant to your issue.

The Importance of a Good Consultation

The goal of an initial consultation is to find an attorney you are comfortable working with and someone who can help you understand your options under the law. Seek to understand the relevant legal experience the attorney brings to your case. While it is not realistic to expect an attorney to resolve your legal issue during an initial consultation, you should gain a level of comfort with his/her ability to do so. A good consultation can clarify issues, raise pertinent questions and considerations for your case, and help you make an informed decision towards resolving your legal issue.

Types of legal fees:

Bill by the hour: Many attorneys bill by the hour. How much an attorney bills you per hour will vary based on a number of factors. For instance, an attorney’s hourly fee may fluctuate based on whether that hour is spent representing you in court or doing research on your case. Attorneys in one practice area may bill you more than attorneys in a different practice area.

Contingent fee: Some lawyers will accept payment via contingent fee. In this arrangement, the lawyer receives a percentage of the total monetary recovery if you win your lawsuit. In sum, the lawyer only gets paid if you win. Contingent fee agreements are limited to specific practice areas in civil law.

Flat fee: For “routine” legal work where the attorney generally knows the amount of time and resources necessary to complete the task, he/she may be willing to bill you a flat fee for services performed.

Common legal terms explained

Plaintiff – a person or party who brings a lawsuit against another person(s) or party/parties in a court of law. Private persons or parties can only file suit in civil court.

Judgment – A decision of the court. Also known as a decree or order. Judgments handed down by the court are usually binding on the parties before the court.
