E. J. Lashlee History:

E. J. Lashlee is a professional Trustee serving clients since 1973. He has owned and managed many businesses over the years and invested primarily in real estate. He served as a Specialist in the U.S. Army during and between studies at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. As a student, he played trumpet, then joined professional bands, Las Vegas showrooms, and did occasional recording studio work. Michelin trained him as an Engineer in 1968 specializing in forensic tire performance and balancing, allowing him to manage the original Michelin distributorship in Nevada. He became a licensed Real Estate Broker in 1970, managed Jack Matthews & Company, which evolved into Prudential Americana Realty; the largest realty in Nevada, that eventually became Berkshire Hathaway Home Services-Nevada Properties. With friends, he created Colonial Properties, Wrangler Properties, Wishing Well Realty, Wishing Well Investors, Western Title and Escrow, and now continues as a real estate investor and developer. He then focused on becoming a professional trustee managing 2.4 billion dollars in assets. With another investor, he created National Leasing, the first cell phone system in Nevada in 1970. Other investments include environmental products, energy, business development, real estate, motor vehicles, electrical devices, plastics, patents, and international life improvement of poor children. As a real estate venture, E.J. bought the historic Daydream Guest Ranch in 1977, then developed the steakhouse, casino, saloon, rodeo facilities, expanded the Guest Resort, and held events holding up to 17,000 people. A massive mortgage theft by Allstate Thrift and Sam Krug inspired him to persist in a five year investigation that eventually convicted Krug. After family members created Ashton-Tate in 1980, (the second largest software giant at the time), he created Software Trust – a dBase and Framework affiliate and design company. E.J. designed software based on dBASE and FRED languages and created the ABC OFFICE PACK programs. He designed "standard websites" and "image slideshow viewers" that are plug-n-play that still prevail on the the internet. In 1995, he became the second largest wire wheel manufacturer in the US with companies like Wild Works Wheels, Road Wings Design Manufacturing, and Hallcraft Wheels. Proprietary products included shocks, headlights, frames, rotors, rims, tanks, hubs, and other exotic billet products. In 1999, he created private client accounts and transferred approximately 590 million dollars into various international investment groups. In the following years, because of a large group, he became the target of the IRS mainly because of their difficulty in identifying managers and participants in one investment group. The IRS suspected that about 300 of their investors were evading taxes. They knew that with privacy provided by Lashlee, they could not identify or audit the investors. Eventually, about nine controllers of the investment group confronted the IRS, and they eventually confessed (or were convicted) of destroying records or tax evasion, regardless of their guilt (or lack of it). The single overseer of that fund, John Sherman Lipton, then stole all of the investments and traded his testimony for a minimal sentence, while throwing his unknowing innocent directors and his secretary to the prison system. The conflict with Lashlee and the IRS continued with payments by Lashlee of $550 (five hundred fifty) towards a disputed $12,500 fine, that eventually resulted in an IRS settlement signaling their "win" that was finalized in 2007. The IRS then sealed the settlement records. In 2010, he investigated Isreal Owen Hawkins, Jr. and PETRO AMERICA CORPORATION, and gave a blueprint of his Ponzi scheme and securities fraud to the FBI, that shortly thereafter arrested and convicted Hawkins. He has evolved from business ventures gradually over time into writing, designing, educating, research, travel, speaking engagements, and especially helping poor children with medical problems, which allows for much more family time. Lashlee invented two versions of foldable bicycle wheels that allow bicycles (with full size wheels) to fold into a overhead airline style backpack. He holds eleven patents on diverse items that include: a) foldable wheels b) other folding devices c) a Safety Lock Box for easy entry by adults and protection from entry by children d) adjustable joint axis bicycle frame accommodating various sized riders e) multi-diameter joint connector for bamboo construction intended for roof trusses f) a simpler resealable recyclable cola can g) a portable bathtub safety bar Asset Protection Trust Book by E.J.

Lashlee Other Achievements: E.J. held more State, County and City Licenses than any other Nevada businessman (over 52 licenses active at one time), to include Real Estate Broker, Notary Public, and an Nevada Gaming License. He orchestrated the first Savings & Loan investigation and conviction, and promoted interstate banking law enticing Citibank into Nevada to assist defrauded bank investors with recovery. His “ABC Business Office” software programs, “dBASE Report Tools”, “Real Rules for Real Estate” are still viable in the changing business economy. He has participated with TIMOTCA, UNICEF, The United Nations, Asian Nations Group, and the Congress of the Philippines. In 1995 he created Key Kid Foundation, a free surgery foundation for poor children in undeveloped nations. He created a charitable organization in 1997 to install electricity, free computers, software, and training in poor school districts in rural Asia. He has strong ties to his children, wife, friends, and long-term business associates. He values their relationships, their success, and their happiness.  E.J. Lashlee address phone Contact: E.J.
