Jay Mitton has been referred to as the “Father of Asset Protection,” having helped thousands of people, including many small business owners, protect themselves and their assets from legal liability. After earning his B.S., MBA, and Juris Doctor degrees, Mitton had a four-decade-long career specializing in asset protection. In addition to his work as an attorney, Mitton was a best-selling author, celebrated public speaker, and the founder of several businesses. His legacy lives on in the wealth of knowledge he left behind, and in the work of those at Legally Mine LLC.
Tracing its roots back to the very first asset protection firm founded by Jay Mitton, Legally Mine was purchased by Dan McNeff in 2007. While Mitton’s original business model focused heavily on educating medical professionals on how to protect their assets, implement money-saving tax strategies, and put an estate plan in place, McNeff brought new life to the company.
Under McNeff’s leadership, Legally Mine expanded its offerings and began providing fulfillment services to its thousands of members. In addition to educating medical professionals on the importance of “covering their assets,” the team of lawyers and paralegals at Legally Mine create personalized asset protection blueprints and required entities that protect clients from frivolous lawsuits.
By working with each state and the IRS, Legally Mine is able to create entities for clients that allow not only for asset protection but also for considerable tax savings. Through a series of tax strategy appointments and estate planning appointments with their team of attorneys, clients are educated on the entire process; they also create their living trusts and learn how they can help to avoid medical lawsuits.
Highly Specialized, Yet Affordable
Compared to the number of personal injury and criminal defense lawyers, lawyers who specialize in asset protection are extremely difficult to find. In order to properly and effectively protect your assets, a lawyer must be versed in the laws of all 50 states. Asset protection is not as glamorous or as exciting as other types of law, and many clients don’t know they need professional asset protection. It is for these reasons that many asset protection attorneys charge a premium for their services.
By specializing in asset protection and maintaining an entire department dedicated to educating medical professionals on why they need asset protection and how it works, Legally Mine is able to offer the highest level of fulfillment at an affordable price. Their team of 50 employees is fully focused on asset protection, tax strategies, and estate planning for medical professionals.
Education is Key
In line with Jay Mitton’s original business plan, Legally Mine spends considerable time and resources on the education of its clients. Every staff member is fully transparent with their clients about how all protections will be achieved and managed. Even before clients sign on, Legally Mine’s Speakers and Sales Team travel to events and educational seminars to teach medical professionals about asset protection and answer any questions that attendees at the event might have.
Medical professionals are well aware that their profession is one of the most highly litigated in the country, but they’re not always sure what (if anything) they can do about it. By making education a key component of the Legally Mine business plan, their team empowers medical professionals to understand the necessity of services and how Legally Mine executes its protection strategies.
