I had been looking for an asset protection structure for over 6 months, once I got in contact with Scott I knew he was my guy (attorney). Being a Californian resident I needed to avoid the $800 annual franchise tax for LLCs, Scott had the Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) product. The DST provided me the anonymity and asset protection I as looking for without being subject to California franchise tax. Great job Scott!

I had a great initial consultation, and learned so much during that one phone call, where they explained options and benefits clearly. I took notes, but when I had a few more questions later, the team was quick to respond.Everyone that I’ve had contact with has been friendly, knowledgeable and professional, and I feel secure and confident that I selected the right team to protect my assets!

First heard about Scott and Royal Legal through a Morris Invest podcast. Scott was talking about the series LLCs and their advantages and simplicity over the "typical" structure that real estate investors use (i.e. a holding company with LLCs for each individual property). I was, and still am, starting out as a RE investor, but I thought to myself, this sounds like the RIGHT kind of setup for me. It's safe, anonymous, and will be future proof as I expand and acquire more properties. Plus it would be a lot less costly if I started doing it the right way from the start, rather than correcting a bunch of stuff when I was much more established.When I contacted Royal Legal, everyone I spoke to was nothing if not cordial, encouraging, and very patient with me and my questions. I pulled the trigger not only on my entity setup for RE investing, but also on some estate planning. They took the time to get things done, and done right, then provided me with a package all at once which included:* My series LLC "holding" company.* My company's EIN.* A child series LLC for each of my 2 first investment properties.* Documentation for the trusts that are also part of the overall structure and provide the anonymity.* All documents regarding my estate planning, living will, living trust, and power of attorney for my wife and myself.Additionally, Royal Legal will continue to serve as my registered agent in TX, which is the state my LLC was formed in (I live in Colorado). Plus, I can use the their address as my "physical" address for anonymity purposes, while using my personal address and phone as my company's "mailing" address for convenience.Royal Legal Solutions provides the WHOLE package. They will take care of everything for you, making sure that NO mistakes will allow any litigious people from coming after you personally. Our ongoing relationship means that I have a legal team on my side, and know my business is protected. I'm very comfortable with the fact that they are there and are very responsive when I have questions and concerns.Plus Scott, is a rock-star himself. Good guy, and now I seem to hear him on podcasts all over the place. Maybe this series LLC thing is catching on...

Scott and his team (Dawn in particular) helped me to resolve an urgent issue for a sale transaction of a property owned by my Trust. Scott did this through email and text to me and his team members while out of his office/town. I was impressed how his team (specially Dawn) rallied and reached out to me and got me what I needed by the same day afternoon. Way to go Scott and the Royal Legal Solutions Team.

Scott's company has been so helpful. My business partner and I were debating on spending on the money set everything up, but once we found out Scott's pricing and what they offered, it was an easy choice. Once we started the process we started to realize how much we did not know and quickly had several questions. Scott's office immediately scheduled us for a call with Scott who was able to walk us through everything and explain everything in a very comprehensible way. Knowing that this portion of our business is covered removes such a weight from our shoulders. Not only is Scott very personable, but his entire staff has been incredibly friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend, regardless of your portfolio size. We currently only have 2 properties, but knowing that we wanted to grow our portfolio, this was the best decision we've made.

HOW TO build bulletproof asset protection

Asset protection starts with insurance, but that's not where it stops. Effective Asset Protection protects you when the insurance company won't or simply chooses not to. The best Asset Protection stops lawsuits before they start by hiding your assets and making it look like you qualify for food stamps.

Since we are real estate investors ourselves, we also prioritize streamlining all of your operations and costs with efficient uses of bank accounts, tax returns, accounting, and day-to-day operations.



What does a completed system look like?

The diagram above shows a complete asset protection structure. There's an Operations or Shell Company (Traditional LLC), an Asset Holding Company (Series LLC), Anonymous Land Trusts, Living Trusts (Estate Planning), Tax Saving Vehicles, and so much more.

Each of these are powerful on their own, but combined they form an impenetrable fortress around your assets. Let's take a closer look at how some of this stuff works.



Most people use traditional LLCs to perform every business function. This is convenient, but if you own more than two assets, it exposes you to unnecessary risk.

More secure ways to use the LLC is as an Shell (or Operating) Company if you have multiple assets, or as an Asset Holding Company if you don't.

Notice that when used as a Shell Company, it's intentionally split off from the Asset Holding Company. This is known as separation and it's one of many ways to protect your assets from a lawsuit.



At the top right of the diagram, we have the Asset Holding Company. This entity holds your assets and can scale to infinity.

The parent series can spin off an infinite number of children, which behave like Limited Liability Companies (LLC).



Did you know your personal information available on the internet? In fact, it's possible to find out what you own and how much you're worth within seconds of learning your name.

One of the cheapest ways to defend yourself is to use Land Trusts to wrap yourself in anonymity. It'll make you look like a beggar on paper - and nobody sues people who look like beggars.

I had like a bazillion LLCs because I was protecting every asset. I was really concerned about piercing the corporate veil. I worried we might screw up operationally and spend money in a way that would get us into trouble. You guys gave us the confidence to know each property was separated from the other. And it's not your first rodeo. You came highly referred and recommended, there was a high level of trust for us.

I heard you on a podcast and saw you all over Bigger Pockets. I knew you were an expert and you really had your stuff together with Series LLCs. It sounded like a win-win scenario - not that expensive, straightforward, and your team would be handling all the details for me. The access made it worthwhile. I always get my questions answered in a timely manner. I really never considered working with another attorney.

I wouldn't be able to pull off an estate plan, a Series LLC, a traditional LLC, and a Solo 401k by myself at this pace. Other people said they could do it faster, but I felt [like they gave] a very cookie cutter approach. It got outside of their box pretty quick. The first time speaking with you, I remember going, "Oh yeah, this makes a lot of sense."

Who is watching your back?

The most important thing in real estate and life is who you do it with. Having a great team makes all the difference, but finding the right people can be uniquely challenging. Who do you need? And how do you tell if they have your best interests at heart?

Billionaires do this by hiring 20 people that just focus on taking care of them and their wealth. They call this a "Family Office". Now, and for the first time ever, you as a real estate investor can have your own Family Office just like the Billionaires. They have attorneys, CPAs, coaches and a host of other specialized services watching their back at every turn. You, as a member of Royal Legal Solutions, will have the same.

Why spend years building your own real estate dream team when you can use ours instead? We have the professionals on staff and a network of providers vetted by us to handle all of your real estate investor needs no matter who you are, where you're located, or what investing you're doing
