Probate & Trust

Asset Protection Committee

The mission of the Asset Protection Committee of the Real Property, Probate and Trust Law ("RPPTL") Section of The Florida Bar is to consider, develop, debate, and promote asset preservation relevant to Floridians. The committee both develops its own asset protection legislative proposals and vets those of others. It also serves as a watchdog against persistent efforts to erode Florida's asset protection attributes.
We have Committee meetings at each RPPTL Executive Council Meeting. Check the schedule on the RPPTL website for future meetings.
Even if you are not a Committee member, come and visit our next Committee meeting. We'll discuss recent asset protection cases, any legislative topics and try to get a handle on how better to mix estate planning and asset protection. Hope to see you there!
If you are interested in becoming a Committee member, please contact any of the Chairs.

Next, Daniel L. Tullidge will discuss what happens when a client’s creditors seek to garnish funds held by an attorney?
Then, Justin Savioli will lead a discussion on two recent cases that criticized lawyers for post judgment/risky asset protection planning.
Further, John Costello will give a brief overview of Secured Transactions for Digital Assets and Associated UCC Amendments.
Time permitting, there were a few proposed bills from BLS that Asset Protection was asked to comment on. Michael Sneeringer will briefly point those out.
