Skilled High-Asset Divorce Attorneys Who See The Big Picture

The most important thing in a high-asset divorce is that all assets are accounted for when dividing the marital property. All too often, people make decisions without realizing the impacts that these decisions have on what happens to their finances going forward. They then find themselves struggling to make ends meet or paying large support orders because they did not take the time to fully evaluate their situation.

Our high-asset divorce lawyers take the time to make sure we review each client’s situation in detail. We then explain what we can do to help you move forward in your case. In a high-asset divorce, there are many different issues our firm can help with, including:

  • Dividing retirement assets
  • Completing a qualified domestic relations order (QDRO) to help with the division of future retirement assets
  • Evaluating and dividing business ownership interests
  • Finding hidden or concealed assets
  • Determining the value of stock options or stocks that a person may own as part of his or her compensation package
  • Inheritances/separate property concerns
  • Spousal support (alimony) and child support

In these cases, there can be significant disagreements about what should or should not be considered as marital property. With extensive experience on either side of these matters, our attorneys are ready to help you protect your interests.
