Hillel Presser is a true believer in the power of ambition. Presser was
raised in Rochester, NY. Originally a major in entrepreneurship, he completed
his undergraduate degree at Syracuse University. He then returned to South
Florida to complete his law degree from Nova. Presser (J.D. ’05)
states that his Nova experience was a positive one, and says “I
always try my best to hire my employees from Nova.”
Presser relates that his Nova education put him in a service-centric mindset
of “how can I make money for that person?” and the value in
perseverance. Following law school, Presser gained experience with the
state attorney’s office and was a felony prosecutor in jury trials.
Soon he opened his own law firm, Hillel L. Presser and Associates, and
taught himself asset protection.
It was then that he met the person that would become his next mentor. Over
the course of a year, Presser worked tirelessly to bring in asset protection
cases, and then asked to work at the firm. At first, he was told there
were no openings. Presser persisted, stating “give me three months;
if I’m not the best, I’ll leave. “
Presser’s resolve eventually yielded success; the two founded a firm,
providing asset protection, legal and business counsel, business turnaround,
and estate planning. Today, known as The Presser Law Firm, P.A, the company
represents individuals and businesses in connection with the establishment
of comprehensive Asset Protection plans that incorporate both domestic
and international components. Presser also founded an organization as
an opportunity for other attorneys to help each other, and to advance
and network in the industry.
A prolific author, Presser has authored several books and articles on Asset
Protection and Law. These include but are not limited to: Financial Self
– Defense, Financial Self – Defense (Revised Edition), Asset
Protection Secrets, Asset Protection in Financially Unsafe Times (foreword),
and Captive Insurance Companies (foreword). He is already more than half
way through his new book on lawyer marketing. He has been featured in
such publications as Forbes, Sports Illustrated, The Robb Report, the
Houston Chronicle, and the Los Angeles Times.
Presser is also an entrepreneur extraordinaire. In 2007, Presser partnered
with fellow Nova alumnus Bradford Cohen (J.D. ’97) to open 1-800-Muffins.com.
His lawyer marketing company will officially be launched at some point
in 2012. The company will focus on helping lawyers get both additional
and better quality clients by thinking “outside of the box, but
inside of the law.” He is also involved in several real estate ventures.
Presser says, “I don’t ever see myself retiring.”
Always keeping busy, Presser has taught Business Law at Lynn University
to both Graduate and Undergraduate. He has been going nights to get his
MBA, and will receive it this year. He is recognizable from one of his
many appearances on such radio and television stations as FOX, NBC, ABC,
and CBS, as well as season three of Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker.
Given his profession, it is not surprising that Presser represents many
professional athletes, and celebrities. His dedication to client service
gives his practice what he considers not only a competitive advantage,
but a different approach. “Most lawyers want to take clients’
money; my job is to protect it.”
YES, YOU CAN LOSE EVERYTHING!
You may think that your wealth is safe and that you don't need protection.
But don't delude yourself and accept reality — for every 60
minutes you spend making money, spend 60 seconds thinking about how to
