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.
