Paul Wilkins’ initial career objective was to be an educator. He earned both a BA (Magna Cum Laude) and a MA in History from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). After spending two summers as an intern for a local commercial bank, his new interest in banking spurred him to earn a MBA from the Anderson School at UCLA.
After graduation, he entered the credit training program at Bank of America. Subsequent jobs provided additional experiences as an REO manager for a multi-billion dollar mortgage lender, regional portfolio manager for a major private mortgage insurer, and a stint as a Liquidation Specialist for the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). He included his financial services tour of duty with two regional commercial banks, handling both commercial real estate work-outs and REOs.
Paul’s professional fun really began in 1996, when he joined National Consumers Finance Company, which later changed it’s name to Heir Buyout Company. Working on an average of over 50 probate cases per month, Paul has gained substantial knowledge of the probate process over the past 21 years. In 2010 he and his business partners founded what is now Approved Inheritance Cash, a national provider of credit during the probate process.
