On today's episode, Seth speaks to Paul Deloughery , a Scottsdale, Arizona estate planning attorney about finding the real-world solutions to real-world problems. He advocates on behalf of families and helps with all their estate planning needs!
Paul is the Founder and Senior Attorney at Paul Deloughery Asset Protection, PLC. He was first admitted to practice law in 1998 and since 2001 has focused on estate planning and probate issues, with a strong emphasis on blended families. He graduated with honors from the University of Iowa College of Law in 1996, and was a partner in a home-health agency just before beginning law practice. This home-health experience gave him a lot of insight into family dynamics and the need for precise estate plans.
Paul sees through complex issues and comes up with enforceable strategies to resolve his clients’ problems. His own experiences have helped him understand the issues others have. He knows the pain that family disputes and litigation can cause, and will do his best to counsel families ahead of time to ensure families don’t go through similar situations.
He knows firsthand the long-term impact of family chaos. His father died when Paul was 16, and his mother barely escaped bankruptcy. In 2003, when Paul was 35 years old, he discovered that his father had actually been his stepfather, and he had never met his biological father. Paul finally met his biological father in 2009, six weeks before his death. When Paul’s biological father passed away, Paul inherited a large sum of money. Unfortunately, his father did not have an estate plan so Paul was left with a mess of taxes and legal issues which could have been avoided if the proper steps would have been taken before his father’s death.
Paul’s complex personal history has given him a unique perspective on life and the challenges of this human experience. This outlook has led him to a deep understanding of human psychology and the conflicting family dynamics that underlie legal issues.
