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.

    T.P.

  • 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.”

  • Jeff is very up front about his experience, results and belief in the success or possible issues with your case.

    “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 proffession. 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 thoughful and prepared for. I cannot say enough for the level of professionalism this man presents while representing you as a client.”

  • 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!”
