Very few lawyers can say they’ve represented someone who won almost half a billion dollars – $451,000,000 in a Mega Millions Jackpot, to be specific. I have. Having represented lottery winners in the past, I know a big win is exhilarating, thrilling and life-changing, yet these emotions can sometime include a significant source of anxiety. What do I do next? Should I call someone? Is there a protocol I should follow? Is my safety at risk? What do I do with this much money?
In fact, you don’t need to have a huge win to need legal representation. I’ve consulted with many winners and represented a client who won as “little” as $3 million who had no track record of handling millions of dollars. Remarkably, the process of redeeming a winning ticket is similar whether you’ve won a small fortune or a big one. What you do with the money is not similar – it is as individual as the person who won it and the amount you won. We put together a team of professionals who will help you navigate this newfound wealth to protect and preserve your money for yourself and even for future generations.
