High Net Worth Divorce
Those marriages between individuals that own a large number of properties, works of art, business interests, stock accounts and other assets should be carefully managed by a legal professional with insight, a strategic approach, and a track record of success in resolving high net worth cases favorably for clients.
Marital Asset Division
The law provides for an equitable distribution of assets in divorce. What this actually means can vary widely. Some may be forced to sell the family home to pay a settlement; others could have a more reasonable solution. Working with the opposing attorney prior to taking a case to court could be more effective in getting a fair settlement.
Orders Of Protection
Those who are victims of domestic abuse are truly in great danger, as statistics show. If you have been violently attacked or threatened, you must act at once to gain the protection offered by the law through an order of protection. Although this order cannot protect you from a person who chooses to violate it, if there is any violation, the abuser will be immediately taken into custody.
