Gold Sponsors


Hsiao Law {Kids Protection Plan®)

Your Kids Protection Plan® is a set of instructions, legal documents and an emergency wallet card – all of which you need to have if you have kids at home who count on you for their well-being and care. If you are in an accident, your Kids Protection Plan® will make sure your children are never taken into the custody of Child Protective Services, strangers or the care of anyone you would not want simply because the authorities don’t have clear instructions from you.

And your Kids Protection Plan® will ensure your children are raised by people you choose, not someone chosen by a judge who doesn’t know you. Hsiao Law will be on-site to share more about protecting both your children and assets.
