All domestic and family law matters are stressful. However, any time child abuse, neglect or marital infidelity is suspected, the stress placed on the parties involved can be enormous. We will listen to you and will help guide you through such matters. We work with private investigators when marital infidelity or adultery is suspected. We work with psychologists and psychiatrists who may be called in to perform psychological evaluations of the parents and children in custody and visitation cases. We work with social services and other health care professionals in cases where child abuse or neglect is suspected. Our attorneys are well respected in these areas and, in fact, are regularly appointed by the Court to represent children in a guardian ad litem capacity in such matters.
Our law firm is also experienced with property division in high-asset family law matters. We understand the need for investigation, appraisal and full disclosure by the parties. We work with accountants and business valuation experts to ensure that any marital property settlement or distribution is fair and equitable. With the backing of our Real Estate and Corporate and Business Law Practice Groups, we have experience others may not have in dealing with complex business valuation and property valuation cases.
