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 a free 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

  • We recommend Shaffer & Engle to everyone and anyone, even if you are unsure if you have a case.

    “Our experience with Shaffer & Engle was beyond our expectations. Elisabeth is absolutely an amazing attorney! We were expecting to get about a 50% reduction in our case, but she surpassed that and got BOTH of the traffic tickets completely thrown out! Saving us from a driver's license suspension of up to 18 months long! She's spectacular! We recommend Shaffer & Engle to everyone and anyone, even if you are unsure if you have a case. Just ask them, they will explain all of your options and in plain English so that it makes sense to you! Elisabeth is unlike any attorney we have ever met. Very open, honest and down-to- earth......she speaks her mind freely and loudly! It gave us a more comfortable feeling having her represent us and our case! Again, Thank you so much Elisabeth, we greatly appreciate all you did for us! We will call Shaffer & Engle first for all of our future legal matters!”

  • You really did make a "federal case" of my situation!

    “Elisabeth, You are the best! I can't express how upset I was when I discovered that my builder committed fraud and lied to me about the quality and condition of my new house. It was a huge investment for me and he put me in a bad financial situation. I was cautiously hopeful when you told me you could help. When you got me a judgment for $130,000 plus- three times the amount of my damages- I was amazed! Thanks so much for all of your hard work and dedication. You really did make a "federal case" of my situation! With the money you won for me, I can finally enjoy my home. P.P.”

  • They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process.

    “Jeff is the 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 abroad, and a non-custodial parent who was anything but cooperative, there was a high likelihood that my case would be unsuccessful with even the potential of being ordered to return to the US to maintain physical custody of my son. Today my child and I are happily living abroad and I was able to obtain the residency permit for my son to remain here. I attribute the success of my case to Jeff and his firm. They handled everything beautifully and were able to minimize our anxiety throughout a difficult process. Thank you!”

  • She's a hard worker and she knows her stuff.

    “She's very dependable, honest, and very easy to talk to. She always returns my calls in a timely manner. She's a hard worker and she knows her stuff.
