Helping South Florida Residents Keep And Pass Along What They've Earned

Asset Protection Specific To Florida Assets And Out-Of-State Assets For Florida Residents

You've worked hard for what you've earned — we work hard at the Law Offices of Frye & Vazquez, P.L., to make sure you keep what you've earned. If you're named in a Florida lawsuit, having a well-crafted Florida asset protection plan can be the difference between losing everything and keeping what is rightfully yours. Each of your assets should be protected against liabilities that can arise from another of your assets. With such high stakes, waiting to protect yourself is simply not an option.

We Are Educated About Complex And Ever-Changing Federal And State Regulations

At the Law Offices of Frye & Vazquez, P.L., we are specialists in navigating federal and state of Florida laws governing asset protection, and have been effectively protecting business owners, professionals and families from creditors, predators and litigation for 25 years. Our goal is to help you keep your Florida as well as out-of-state assets out of the reach of creditors while still retaining substantial control over your protected assets.

Twenty-five years of experience with all Florida-specific laws and considerations such as:

  • Florida homestead exemption (debtor protection homestead provision)
  • Reduction of ad valorem property tax
  • Wage-earner accounts
  • Pensions, profit-sharing plans, IRAs
  • Disability insurance income
  • Out-of-state asset protection for Florida residents
  • Life insurance and annuity contracts
  • 529 savings and tuition plans
  • Florida corporations, partnerships and proprietorships

Two key ways we ensure your assets remain properly protected:

  1. We keep each of your Florida and out-of-state assets protected from liabilities that can stem from your other assets by protecting your individual assets, as well as optimizing overall entity and trust structuring.
  2. Our lawyers review and update your entities and protective structuring as new federal as well as state laws and rulings are established.
