Stein Sperling principals Monica Harms and Steve Widdes point out the importance of protecting (and properly titling) the significant assets clients have acquired prior to their getting married or remarried.
Monica Harms: Many of our clients have established their careers and acquired significant personal assets prior to deciding to get married or remarried. They come to us seeking advice on how to protect those assets.
Steve Widdes: Asset protection is an increasingly important aspect to estate planning. We work closely with our family law attorneys to ensure that assets are properly titled in order to minimize the threat of creditors.
