High Net Worth Divorce

Tupelo Attorney Handling High Net Worth Divorce Cases

If you are going through divorce, there are many difficult issues to overcome, from child custody disputes to property division. For those with high net worth, there are additional complicated issues.

I understand what you are facing because I went through it myself. I tell all of my divorce clients to save the marriage if at all possible. I know the trauma that divorce causes the couple and their children. In representing you, I avoid vindictiveness and never simply inflate my fees; I only wish to assist you in this difficult time.

Providing Personalized Attention In Your Time Of Need

I understand that a high level of personal attention is required in high-asset divorce cases. No matter the extent or variety of your assets, I will do everything I can to represent your interests aggressively while remaining empathetic to your needs. When necessary, I recommend retaining tax accountants, forensic accounting experts and others to evaluate the value of a property or business.

Frequently, one party has a more successful career or a wealthy family or simply brought more assets into the marriage. Whether you are this party or one concerned about your financial future, I will listen to your concerns and work thoroughly to obtain your best possible outcome.

Property must first be designated as "marital property" or separate property. Only marital property is divided in divorce. A thorough inventory must be made, and if there is reason to suspect that assets are hidden, I can retain experts to assist in locating and identifying them. Finally, business valuation and other details of property division will be handled.
