“If we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free.” Edmund Burke
What’s happening in the United States is an unprecedented increase in the Risk associated with conducting a business, practicing in any medical related field, and taking responsibility for others, particularly employee related responsibility. Our country has always had a distinct lack of fear, especially when talking about the freedom we have enjoyed in starting and running a business. That lack of fear has steadily been replaced by an increasing pressure from a legal system that has become corrupted. Even a cursory look at today’s civil justice system reveals a startling shift in perception. A dramatic 78% of those asked do not feel that they would get a “fair shake” if facing a civil legal challenge. This is easy to check out, simply ask yourself the following questions:
“If you were being sued by an employee, patient or customer, and you KNEW for sure that what they were charging was false, would you feel comfortable that our legal system would find in your favor?”
If you answered no, you are not alone. This is the perception of risk. Perception is reality and thus this is the environment in which we all live. Asset Protection is not about giving in to that fear, it is about empowering yourself in the face of it. Short of massive reformation of our legal system, the risk is not going to decrease. In fact it has steadily increased over the past 30 years.
What Asset Protection does is simply, easily and legally dramatically increases your power in the face of this existing and increasing risk in the United States. You cannot change the system, but you can change your relative position within that system. So what are the facts about the risks today?
We live in the world’s most litigious country.
America has more lawyers, and files more lawsuits, than any other country in the world. And the numbers keep growing every year. The cost of civil justice in America has surpassed $300 billion a year. The U.S. civil justice system is corrupted.
