We Cater to Your Specific Needs
Our legal team understands the emotional stress that often results from the divorce process and will provide the compassionate and empathetic support you need as you seek to end your marriage. We are sensitive to the needs of our clients who are going through a divorce and are dedicated to professional excellence and to achieving the best results. The important aspects of divorce today are to discern the value of closely held businesses, stock options, licenses of professionals, and the value of enhanced earnings of exceptional wage earners. In today's world, courts tend to ignore fault in divorce cases. Instead, they focus on financial issues in an attempt to value and distribute marital assets fairly, as well as to fix the proper amounts for child support and maintenance (alimony).
