Asset Protection Attorney Ike Devji
“When it Comes to Choosing an Asset Protection Lawyer Experience is the Key Consideration”
“I love seeing people succeed”Like many attorneys, Ike’s legal experience started in a litigation practice where he quickly realized two things. First, that many lawsuits are based as much on collectability as they are on actual liability. Second, that the best advised and most successful people in America were getting special help managing their risks and making their futures more predictable. They were doing this by properly separating their assets and liabilities when they had an ethical and legal right to do so.
“I decided that I would rather play defense and help entrepreneurs, business owners, and physicians like many of the self-made success stories I grew up with and saw in my own family, than take things away from people as a litigator”
Ike Devji and his colleagues have the choice of thousands of these individuals and their advisors from across the United States and he helps protect over $5 Billion dollars in personal assets for clients in all 50 states and from a dozen plus foreign countries. His experience includes the effective use both domestic legal tools and business structures including complex special purpose trust structures, limited partnerships, LLCs and aiding countless clients in the legal U.S. tax law compliant use of sophisticated offshore trusts, banks, and jurisdictions for legally and financially qualified clients that want the most predictable possible estate planning outcome for their wealth and their futures.
“The best fight remains the fight never fought”
As an Asset Protection attorney, Ike takes a holistic view of his clients and their wealth and considers any avoidable source of loss, risk or exposure unacceptable. As such, his ongoing study and professional education leads to exploration with clients on both the appropriate legal tools and strategies and the compliance and risk management to help clients avoid predictable exposures in the first place.
