When the Financial Stakes are High
The issue of asset division can be very complex when high assets are involved.
It’s not uncommon for the parties in a divorce to act in ways that may not be in their best interest or to make simple financial errors that can cost them dearly in the calculations of asset distribution.
It takes a skilled professional to analyze the numbers and classify assets. Financial experts bring things into focus. A veteran attorney of high asset divorce cases will know whom to turn to and what issues will have long-term impact. We evaluate property, business assets, retirement assets, marital and pre-marital assets and all other potential assets to ensure that all distributions are equitable and in your best interest. You should know how the alimony or asset distribution will be affected by taxes.
Another area of consideration during a divorce is lifestyle. The cost of maintaining a lifestyle is often discussed, but rarely treated with the attention that it deserves. Lifestyle analysis is a crucial component of divorces, especially in cases where one spouse is a high-income earner and the other is not. A thorough forensic accounting of how and where money was spent during the marriage can help in reaching a fair conclusion.

Our goal is to understand the entire picture so that we have the knowledge and the confidence to pursue the best path forward for you and your family.
