Our firm is dedicated to positioning you for the best presentation of your economic arguments and obtaining the division of assets in the most favorable manner possible.

Business Planning and Tax Matters Related to Divorce

If you own a business or hold business interests, and/or have tax matters which could develop based on your asset holdings, planning is essential.

Divorce
