Unfortunately, we live in a highly litigious society and people seem to sue one another over just about anything. No matter how frivolous a lawsuit may appear, there is no guarantee of the outcome. It is unfortunate, but many attorneys make a good living trying going after the hard earned assets of others.
If you don’t provide a means of protecting your assets, you could very well end up on the “chopping block”.
