How is Jacob Stein, Esq. different?

Jacob Stein is different because he has the experience, the success stories, and capabilities that our competitors do not, allowing him the ability to offer his clients strategic and effective solutions to their asset protection needs.

Does Asset Protection really work?

Yes. In practice, a well-structured asset protection plan will discourage the plaintiff from suing you in the first place. Even if you are sued, an asset protection plan will make it very difficult, and sometimes impossible, for a plaintiff to reach your assets.


Why is community property bad for asset protection?

Under community property laws each spouse is deemed to own all of the community property assets. Because a creditor can seize from you all the assets that you own, if either spouse is sued, all of the spouses’ assets are exposed to the lawsuit. In non-community property states (like New York), the separate property of one spouse is not subject to the claims of creditors of the other spouse. Fortunately, all community property states allow their residents to opt out of the community property system.

How do I protect my residence?

There are approximately 6 different techniques of protecting a personal residence. They include: the residence trust, a friendly equity strip, a bank equity strip, a sale to a friendly party, a sale to a third-party, a transfer into a single-member LLC. There is no one solution that works best for everyone. We will make the determination of what would work best for you, on a case by case basis.


Is it safe to invest money offshore?

Yes, and often much safer than investing in the U.S. Many European financial institutions have been around for hundreds of years. They have survived world wars and financial catastrophes. These are usually very large institutions that simply do not advertise their services in the U.S. and are not well known to U.S. investors. It surprises many Americans to find out that many of the world’s largest banks are names that they have never heard before. For example, BNP Paribas is larger than either Bank of America or JP Morgan Chase.

What are the tax consequences of foreign trusts?

None. A foreign trust will neither increase nor decrease your taxes. It is treated in exactly the same manner as your living trust. You will continue to report the income of the trust on your income tax return.
