Creating Legal Solutions in High-Asset Divorce

Our attorneys begin building a solid legal foundation during the discovery phase of divorce. We thoroughly investigate the financial statements, real property, bank accounts, retirement accounts, business records, investments account and tax returns of both our client and his or her spouse.

To further help our clients, our firm relies on the expertise of some of the most accomplished financial professionals in the region. Working together with forensic accountants and business valuation experts, our attorneys are skilled in identifying the true extent of marital and business assets and liabilities.

Once we determine our clients' positions and asset goals, our lawyers approach negotiations with confidence and dedication. When appropriate, we will advocate for mediation or arbitration as an alternative to trial. However, we are determined litigators and are fully prepared to litigate if our clients' objectives are not being met.
