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
"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..." Michael Starling
"I've had Mr. Goldman do my entire estate planning as well as my gun trust. I highly recommend him and his firm. If you're planning a gun trust, trust no one else Mr. Goldman is one of if not the best versed on this topic." Howard
“Great service is an understatement. We bought several properties that Mr. Goldman handled for his clients. The communication and explanation of everything was terrific. I would definitely recommend him for all of your real estate needs.” Kassandra

Not only did Attorney Goldman assure me they could take care of this his office was wonderful. Jennifer was assigned to my case and she was wonderful and were able to guide another probate case I had saving me additional time and frustration. Highly recommend this office.” Debbie
