DAP® Trust - Digital Asset Trust

Digital Asset TrustDigital assets are becoming more significant in our daily lives. Recently there have been articles in the WSJ, NY Times, and even the London Times about problems in the management of our online identities or digital assets. a DAP® Trust can help protect all of your digital assets from the loss that occurs upon your death and can even allow those you specify to mange them if you become incapacitated. Often our digital or online live is as complex as our traditional transactions and while a written power of attorney can help deal with a bank, try to deal with an online entity. It is likely you will not get very far. That is why a DAP® Trust is so important.

Digital Assets include your iTunes music and applications, Facebook, Twitter, photo sharing sites, email addresses, bank and financial institution credentials and anything else you have a login and password for.

There are many problems with digital assets and traditional estate planning techniques. The biggest problem is that most digital assets are licenses that are non-transferable and expire upon death or short terms of inactivity. A DAP® Trust or Digital Asset Trust can manage these assets and allow those who you pre-select to access them without violations of the license terms and without potential liability to others who may claim an interest or claim to have been harmed by the improper access and use of information contained in these assets.

Client Reviews
After years of trying to protect my assets from creditors, I was shocked to find out that my assets were unprotected in ways I had never considered. Not only had I placed my assets at risk from my mother's creditors, but I had placed my assets at risk from other family members who were intent on manipulation. When my mother died, I discovered that a family member had changed my mother's estate planning documents. Mr. Goldman and his team were able to explain what went wrong and successfully defended my position in court. During the case, I learned that I could have had much better protection from family and creditors, thus avoiding years of litigation and undue familial stress. When it comes to protecting your assets and your family, I would highly recommend hiring Mr. Goldman and his team. Bill H.
As a real estate agent, I have been involved with many property transactions where I needed a probate attorney to help facilitate the transaction. I have used the services of Mr. Goldman and his staff over the last several years and continue to use them on a regular basis. His office has been able to navigate the court system and help estates sell their property quickly and efficiently. In addition, Mr. Goldman can help real estate investors structure trusts to protect their assets from creditors. Michael Starling
This office is fantastic. I was faced with a horrible situation and this office helped to put an end to the untenable situation. Ms. Kendal Schoepfer was always available before, during, and after office hours to answer any questions that I had. I highly recommend this law office to all. Tisha Brown
