My typical clients are high net-worth individuals who come to me to help them navigate the legal and the difficult relationship issues that confront them as their marriage ends. Although a marriage involves two people, my client is an individual who deserves a fresh perspective which will serve their interests. Being creative, competent and compassionate is important, but each family is different and has their own unique interests, goals, and needs. Of course the children involved in a divorce require particular attention and sensitivity.
Issues involving the division of assets requires an eye for detail as well as competence. Marriages with family businesses or where one or both spouses have high-salary jobs can involve complex issues, executive compensation packages with stock options, deferred compensation, “golden handcuff” provisions and retirement plans, all of which require experience and understanding.
