Our focus - and what drives us - is helping protect your family and small business in a litigious society that too often threatens your nest egg that you are trying to save for your family and loved ones.
For over 25 years, Rarick & Beskin has been the law firm other lawyers have turned to for help resolving their client’s estate planning, probate, and business matters. Since 1993, more than 500 law firms have asked us to help their clients.Good Estate Planning Integrates Asset Protection
Some estate planning lawyers do not integrate asset protection in their plans. We believe this is like planning with blinders on: you see only about 50% of the threats that could attack your family or business. Modern estate planning integrates asset protection with estate planning because now there are simply too many legal threats to your hard earned property and savings. It is important to take advantage of every law designed to help protect your assets and stay out of court.
In our litigation saturated environment, everyone – including the best business person or best physician – is exposed to lawsuits, regardless of how careful you may be. You may have your real estate investments in an LLC with insurance coverage, but if a person slips and falls on the property, an aggressive Florida personal injury attorney may try to go beyond your policy limits and attack every property owned by the LLC. If the LLC is not properly structured and run, an aggressive Florida litigation attorney may try to pierce the corporate veil and target all other properties you own.
We will help you fight back by taking advantage of laws designed to help protect your exposed properties.
We pride ourselves in not offering a dogmatic approach or one-size-fits-all solution. We first listen and learn about your family and business. Then we endeavor to tailor a plan designed to meet your core objectives – at a cost you can afford.

Tax planning for some persons has become more complex, but there are lots of tax loopholes and benefits. The very wealthy take advantage of these tax breaks – you should too!Protecting Your Children – as Minors and Adults
Most persons want every dime of their hard earned wealth to go to their children or loved ones. Most want to ensure a high quality post high school education for your children. These dreams may vanish if (1) the child blows his or inheritance after turning 18; (2) a creditor or college debtor grabs the inheritance; (3) the child marries and the new spouse manages to squander it. These three threats may be avoided with a properly designed estate plan.
