Protecting You and Your Children
We approach family law from a realistic and strategic approach. We evaluate cases up front to identify opportunities for a negotiated settlement. When these issues can be resolved out of court, there is less cost and less animosity, and more control over the outcome. However, if the other party won't come to the bargaining table or you need us to take a tough stance, we are prepared to litigate.
Our lawyers can break down complex issues of property division such as separate versus joint property. We can bring in valuation experts when necessary to determine the value of assets. We work closely with a CPA or tax specialist to address the tax ramifications of your divorce settlement.
Moving on with your life after divorce is easier when you have a plan for your finances and the custody and care of your children. Contact us at 207-209-2325 or 866-471-9026, or contact us online to arrange a consultation.
