We strive to help relieve the burden of worry about financial issues by analyzing your situation and then clearly presenting all viable options and their implications so that you can make decisions with confidence.

- Valuation and ownership interests in a business or professional practice.
- Equitable division or aggressive protection of retirement plans such as 401(k) accounts, pensions, stock options and other investments.
- Allegations that either spouse has hidden assets or unreported income that should be subject to division and accounted for in child and spousal support awards.
- Fair division of debts incurred during the marriage as well as assets — a major issue for many couples across the economic spectrum in these volatile times.
- Tax considerations relevant under various property division scenarios.
- Negotiated exchanges enabling people to preserve specific assets — from vehicles and jewelry to a vacation home or ownership and control of a family business.
