Greetings,

I know this (my) board is poorly populated, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

I recently (as probably many physicians have experienced) was aghast at my new malpractice insurance premiums (>100% increase from last year with ZERO claims) and have considered lowering my coverage limits to lower my premiums.

My concern with this is that if I DO ever get sued for more than my coverage limits, then I'll be open to seizure of personal/family assets.

One solution I hear about is a "family trust" to protect those assets.

Anyone with experience in setting one of these up? Who does one talk to? Where is there more information on such a thing?

Thanks!
