Family & Marital Law

COMPLEX FAMILY & MARITAL LAW

Complex family law situations, whether separating or divorcing, or embarking on a new relationship, are varied but most often involve high stakes: business ownership or professional practice, large property and personal asset holdings, intricate inheritance and trust structures, even third-party creditors. Other complications arise from interstate relocation, international family issues, and individuals whose high profiles require private resolution out of the public/media spotlight.

While each family law matter is unique, it is likely that our multi-disciplinary Family & Marital Law Group has experienced representing clients with nearly all of these complex circumstances. Attorneys from our business, intellectual property, private wealth, real estate, and tax groups regularly combine resources to represent clients in a holistic manner – even when determining the most effective pre- and post-nuptial agreements. If relationships become contentious, our experienced civil trial lawyers advocate passionately and professionally for our clients’ interests. Perhaps most important is that our clients not only count on our knowledge and skills to navigate the complexities surrounding the stress of family issues; they know they can count on our compassion and empathy as well.
