Part of our experience and expertise is knowing that high asset divorce cases require greater expertise than attorneys alone can offer.
Divorces are rarely pleasant or easy. Is it time for an attorney? If so, there is so much for the couple to consider. You will be splitting assets, addressing family businesses, deciding who gets what, what happens to the kids, the dog, the cars and so much more. You need to make decisions concerning maintenance, the house, visitation rights, custody, support, etc. Often, divorcing couples find they agree on some things, but not on others, and neither feels they should budge.
A simple consultation with one of the experienced divorce attorneys at Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Goodman, LLP, can answer important questions, and it is well worth the time. Compared with what you may lose, financially and otherwise (from making a mistake – through ignorance of the law, or through unintentional emotional reaction due to stress), the cost of good legal advice may be immeasurable and certainly can pay for itself many times over.
Consulting with an attorney skilled in high asset divorce cases may be crucial to your outcome. This is especially true of high net worth divorces/high asset divorces where a large amount of money, property, businesses, assets and other items are at stake. High net worth divorces/high asset divorces may potentially amplify the potential for mistakes with dire consequences. Divorcing parties often feel betrayed, angry, aggrieved and disappointed. Emotions run high and may prevent you from making good decisions that would otherwise result in the best long-term results.
At Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Goodman, LLP, our lawyers, fully understand that not every divorce case can be handled the same. We recognize the nuances and specificity associated with high asset cases on Long Island, in Queens County and in the surrounding areas. Our divorce attorneys utilize their more than 75 years of combined experience handling high asset cases to best serve our clients. But, part of that experience is knowing that high asset divorce cases require greater expertise than attorneys alone can offer. The only way to properly represent a client in a high asset divorce case is to involve other professionals, when necessary, to address issues that go beyond the legal arena.
At Berger, Fischoff, Shumer, Wexler & Goodman, LLP, we work alongside economists and other financial professionals to value assets and businesses as well as tax professionals to provide the details of the tax effects of any strategy or settlement. We realize that any divorce, whether the highest of asset cases or the most minimal, is about obtaining for a client the best possible resolution, either after trial or through settlement.
We place a priority on minimizing conflict and legal fees whenever possible. We understand that after a marriage is dissolved, there usually is a mandatory relationship that must continue between the parties when linked by children or assets. By minimizing conflict and confrontation during the divorce process, we hope that the relationship between the parties can remain civil in the future. In doing so, we feel that we best serve our client’s interests, not only today but for years to come.
