We want our matrimonial law clients to have the benefit of calm, thoughtful, experienced divorce lawyers. If you are getting a divorce, you need to know your rights, your obligations and your options. You need the counsel of a lawyer who is concerned about your future as well as the present situation.
Complex Divorce: High asset divorces are clearly the most complicated and present significant issues regarding valuation of businesses, cash flow and marital assets. Our team of experienced trial lawyers, business lawyers and in house investigators offer forensic capability that is designed to provide an optimum result when your assets are on the line.
Divorce: There are many details involved and many decisions to be made. Our family law attorneys know the law and the family courts well.
Property settlement: We can help you identify and account for all marital assets. We deal with complex issues, including the possibility of hidden assets, the effects of divorce on a family-owned business, the tax consequences of alimony and property division, division of retirement accounts and stock portfolios, and analysis of employee benefits and executive compensation packages.
Child custody, parenting time: Our attorneys help you determine what is in the best interests of minor children. We also explain the laws that determine child support. If there are issues about parental fitness, we can help you with DCF (Department of Children and Families) matters.
Collaboration, mediation: Through collaboration and mediation, many of our family law clients are able to resolve all the issues in a divorce in less time with less cost and stress.
