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

  • 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!”

  • Outcome of the case was the best possible under the circumstances.

    “Very professional and upfront. Reviewed the facts of my case with me in a realistic manner and gave me excellent advice. Did not push hiring the firm on me but let me know exactly what I needed to do if I chose to have her firm represent me. Outcome of the case was the best possible under the circumstances. Well done and thank you!”

  • He treats you with respect, has a great personality, keeps you informed, makes you feel comfortable, and takes time to answer any questions.

    “Hired the Law Office to handle the new Adam Walsh Act law going into effect December 20, 2012. State of PA and State Police was requiring that I register under the new law. Not only required to register but also changing my Tier level from Tier 1 to Tier Pending. Originally was required to register as a Tier 1 for 10 years but under the new law they were requiring to register for life. Attorney Engle took the case and fought from the day he was hired until the case was resolved. This is the only Law Firm I have dealt with that work diligently and kept us well informed throughout the case. Our case Won on two levels: 1. I am no longer required to register under the new Adam Walsh Act. 2. Successfully removed my name from the Sex Offender Registry. I am no longer listed on State or Federal Megan Law web site. I have worked with several Law firms over the past 10 years and Attorney Engle is the best Attorney. He treats you with respect, has a great personality, keeps you informed, makes you feel comfortable, and takes time to answer any questions. He fought for my rights where not too many attorneys out there will. AND he WON our case against the State Attorney General and the Pennsylvania State Police. I will recommend this Law Firm to anyone that need legal representation no matter what the case might be. Big or small this is the law firm you want to hire. I cannot nor can anyone predict the same outcome but they will fight for your best interest.”
