Asset Protection Attorneys in Harrisburg

Take Immediate Legal Action to Protect Your Property

If you are worried about losing specific property in the event of a divorce or during the course of your marriage, Shaffer & Engle can help. Property is most effectively protected before marriage. However, we can take action to protect your assets both before marriage and after your marriage has already taken place through several legal options. Our Dauphin County asset protection attorneys can work with you to find the legal solution that works best for you and your spouse.

A few of these legal solutions include:

  • Revocable trusts
  • Irrevocable trusts
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Postnuptial agreements

To inquire about asset protection, give us a call at (717) 268-4287 to schedule your confidential consultation with our legal team.

Establishing a Prenuptial or Postnuptial Agreement

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are regarded by the court as a contract. They are used to list any wishes that one or both parties has in regard to a possible separation or divorce in the future. Although every couple hopes and intends for their marriage to last, drafting a legal agreement can help to give you peace of mind in the event that the marriage ends. Both parties will need to accurately list their assets going into the marriage, such as investment portfolios, bank accounts, and other pieces of property.

Equitable Distribution & Business Assets

Our firm has significant experience in dealing with equitable distribution, which is the manner that assets and debts are divided during separation or divorce. If you are facing a legal separation or divorce, having strong representation is essential to ensure that you are not taken advantage of. Our goal is to advocate for you by using our in-depth knowledge of family law and bringing in business and financial experts when needed. You can also rely on us to help you protect your stake in your business.

What Our
clients Have to Say


    “Shaffer & Engle helped me through the most traumatic turning point in my life where I felt so alone and had no support except the fact that I needed to get through my disposition to ensure I would be able to continue to excel in my college studies and provide a better life for my young daughter who I am raising alone. They provided me with encouraging words and any possible leads they had come across. I was amazed at how caring my attorney was regarding matters outside of the actual case! After court, I was able to come home and continue to be a rock for my family. Since, I have recently ran out of funding 29 credits shy of my degree but still proud to finish the last semester with a 4.0 gpa making the Deans List five times still maintain work having also begun raising my orphaned seventeen year old god daughter who I came to know as one of the trouble kids at my local Boys & Girls Club where I was hired after completing the community service requirements in my case. I do not receive any financial help from government programs for my budding family but I begged for them to take money for their exceptional service and they refused. I am forever grateful for their kindness and love each time that I look at my girls. Like my title says BEYOND AMAZING...”

    “From the minute you call Jeff Engle's office, you are treated with first class respect and service. Jeff is very up front about his experience, results and belief in the success or possible issues with your case. From the time of retainment, Jeff's use of electronic forms of communication keep you up to date to the minute whenever there are developments and progress in your case. This type of communication is nearly unheard of in ANY profession. Many times, I knew that Jeff was taking his personal time to communicate with me. Jeff presents himself as a very knowledgeable and able attorney with sincere personal interest in the success of your case. During times of uncertainty, having someone of Jeff's demeanor at your side will simply make you feel that no matter what the outcome may be, he is right there with you. There was not one time during the course of my case that I felt Jeff was not thoughtful and prepared for. I cannot say enough for the level of professionalism this man presents while representing you as a client.”


  • Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion.

    “Jeff is is fourth attorney that I have worked with regarding custody of my son. My previous attorneys were neither knowledgeable of the law as it applied to my case nor followed through on the actions they said they would take. Not only did Jeff know what he was doing, but he did everything that he said he would in a timely fashion. Given that my case involved an international relocation, allocation of sole custody for residency purposes...”


  • Ms. Collins took our case, she made us feel like we were her only client.

    “From the first day Ms. Collins took our case, she made us feel like we were her only client. She keeps us in the loop at all times, has put such heart and dedication into the case, and really wants the best outcome. She is positive and makes an effort to keep our spirits up with humor and a different perspective. I know for a fact she puts a lot of her personal time into her work because she wants to do the best job possible, including weekends and holidays.”
