Our attorneys are guides with an excellent reputation for trying cases in the courtroom and resolving the most difficult matters. These matters include high-asset valuation, cases involving businesses, transmutation issues on inherited funds and other extensive property valuation. We work with forensic accountants when we determine with our clients that this expense is justified. We are always cost-conscious and will work for the most cost-effective solutions in your case.

Emily is quite simply the best!
I interviewed and researched many attorneys in the area. I did not want to divorce and I hated the thought of even stepping foot into an attorney’s office. The whole process went completely against my beliefs and how I grew up. It was foreign and frightening to me. I instantly knew Emily was the right attorney for me because she was brutally honest, fiercely strong and yet compassionate at the same time. She was fair, and I wanted fairness! She is classy, smart and down to earth at the same time. I was NOT strong and I know I was stubborn, but she stuck it out with me. She made sure that I was protected financially when I was way too weak to fight for myself. She had the experience and foresight that I lacked. She and her staff are the friends I did not ever want to have, but now I am so grateful that I found them. Truly they have been my refuge in this terrible storm. I am forever grateful. I love you Emily! Thank you for everything!
