Quote from a scathing article on Mr. Mitton: "Mitton, an attorney who has been barred from practicing law in Florida, calls himself "The Father of Asset Protection." Rest of the article at:

Here's the Florida case:

You can search for "Mitton" on the American Bar Association bulletin board (located at http://home.dc.lsoft.com/scripts/wa.exe?S1=aba-ptl-pub) and lots of stuff comes up. I know the posts are mostly by lawyers who may have a problem with the do-it-yourself practice of law, but I can't believe how many statements like the following are out there:

"I don't remember the details of how it works, but I DO
remeber RUN, DON'T WALK to the nearest exit. If this is
the seminar I recall, this is the same guy who told a
seminar that you had to apply GST exemption to $10K annual
gifts to grandchildren."
