ProActive Tax PlanU.S Supreme Court Justice George Sutherland wrote: "The legal right of a taxpayer to decrease the amount of what otherwise would be his taxes, or altogether avoid them, by means which the law permits, cannot be doubted." Gregory v. Helvering, 293 U.S. 465 (1965).
Are you satisfied with the taxes you pay each year? Are you taking advantage of every tax break you deserve?
The world is full of tax preparers who put the right numbers on the right lines for the right forms for the right deadlines. But is your tax preparer making certain you get all the tax breaks you deserve? When was the last time your tax preparer said: "Here is an idea I think will save you money?"
Would you enjoy a tax deduction for meals, sporting events, theatre, movies, golf course fees; your vehicle; cellular telephones; education costs; weekend getaways; vacations anywhere in the world; a home office; parties at your home, home gardening services; gifts for friends, dry cleaning, over the counter medications, even your children's braces?
With ProActive Tax Planning, all these deductions are legal and fully authorized by IRS statutes, regulations, letter rulings, and court cases. Stop paying more than your fair share of taxes.

ProActive Asset Protection PlanOnce an idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the Laws of God, and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence." From Liberty Matters. President Thomas Jefferson once said: "Nothing is ours, which another may deprive us of." to Maria Cosway, 1786. ME 5:440
Asset Protection may be defined as pre-litigation planning to deter lawsuits and promote settlements. The goal of asset protection is to bring closure to potential or actual lawsuits with as little disruption to your life, business, and wealth as possible.
There are three important reasons why you need an asset protection plan. First, there are people and businesses who want your hard earned money. Second, these people and businesses will do everything within their power to take your money. Third, they will take you money until you have no more money left.
Don't be fooled by people who say this can never happen to you. Each year, lawyers file 20 million lawsuits in the USA. That's one lawsuit filed every 1.5 seconds. That's one lawsuit for every 10 adult persons. Lawyers and their clients obtain court judgments totaling 40 billion dollars per year from these lawsuits.
You can make certain this scenario never happens to you. With a ProActive Asset Protection Plan, you can effectively and legally protect yourself against people and businesses who might one day try to take your assets.
A ProActive Asset Protection Plan involves Federal and State Exemptions, such as Retirement Plans, Homesteads, some items of Personal Property, Life Insurance, and Annuities, along with On-Shore private plans such as a Nevada Spendthrift Trust; Limited Liability Company; Family Limited Partnership; Charitable Remainder Trust; Qualified Personal Residence Trust, and a Prenuptial Agreement. Nevada has recently enacted powerful asset protection statutes, therefore lessening the need and expense of an Offshore Plan.

ProActive Estate PlanBenjamin Franklin once said: "Certainty? In this world nothing is certain but death and taxes." Then again, Woody Allan once said: "I'm not afraid to die, I just don't want to be around when it happens."
Estate Planning may be defined as the process of controlling your assets during your life and after your death with several primary objectives.
There are five important reasons for you to have a ProActive Estate Plan.
First, you want to form an investment plan to provide enough assets to meet your retirement needs.
Second, you want to pass your property and money to whom you want, when you want, and how you want.
Third, you want to avoid the time and uncertainty and attorney fees and costs of a court probate proceeding.
Fourth, you want to provide an extra layer of asset protection for your assets.
Finally, you want to reduce, if not eliminate altogether, your estate taxes which, if left unchecked, can total a whopping 35% of your assets.

Arbitration and Mediation - Personal MessagePersonal Message from Brent J. Jordan, Esq., LL.M
I have personally participated in and witnessed the extensive time it takes to prepare for and conduct a jury trial in today's high-tech MTV world. You must not only organize and present the evidence; you must also entertain the jury. Clients, witnesses, pleadings, depositions, written discovery, correspondences, photographs, surveillance videos, and power point presentations; it can now take several weeks of pretrial preparation for a jury trial, as well as surviving on 2-4 hours of restless sleep each night during the trial.
With the latest technological developments, the costs of trial seem to escalate every year. I-phones, I-pads, laptop computers, power point presentations, and an expensive parade of expert witnesses ,including orthopedic surgeons, pain management specialists, radiologists, psychologists, whole person impairment physicians, work disability evaluators, economists, and accident reconstructionists;
the cost of a single day in the courtroom can easily exceed $10,000, not even considering the attorney fees.
But the most difficult part of a trial, without any doubt, is the enormous risk for each party. I recall a jury rendering a $30,000 plaintiff verdict, but after the Nevada Supreme Court granted the defendant an appeal, followed by a new trial, a second jury awarded the same plaintiff $1,300,000.
Or consider the plaintiff who received a favorable $50,000 jury verdict, but then owed the defendant $10,000, because the verdict did not exceed the defendant's offer of judgment, and the plaintiff therefore had to pay $60,000 for the defendant's attorney fees and costs.
Don't let anyone fool you. No one can predict the outcome of a jury trial.
