Along with property ownership comes the need to protect that property… and one day pass it on to your children or grandchildren. You could spend months searching for a different attorney in each field who can help you achieve your goals; or you can come to Eric Habib, Esq., the one attorney who knows you and your assets, your history, and your plans for the future.

You’ve worked hard to build your wealth, but if you hold assets in your own name, through sole proprietorship, or even general partnerships, you are vulnerable to creditors or frivolous lawsuits. A judgment creditor can swoop in easily and attach any assets you have, leaving you with nothing. It is important to protect yourself beforeany of this happens.

Beyond keeping your assets safe from creditors or lawsuits, you want to protect your wealth for your family . You won’t always be around to provide for your loved ones as you do now, and when something happens to you, who should reap the benefit of your hard work: your children, or the IRS?
