Division of Property
A fair division of property can be stressful after an already emotional separation. It can also be complicated since it may involve pensions, investments, stock options, vacation property, shares, and corporate matters. Our team of experienced family lawyers provides strong, passionate representation. We’ve seen it all and know how to give you the help you need. We’ll guide you through the process and simplify things so you can make an informed decision based on your situation. We also have experience with the division of property from common-law relationships.
We don’t have to go outside the firm to access lawyers in related areas. We’ll consult colleagues in our Real Estate, Wills, Trusts & Estates, and Business groups to make sure your needs are covered.
Protecting your interests
We’ll work to save you the time, cost, and stress of litigation by resolving property issues without going to court. We focus on solutions, which means protecting your best interests and reaching a fair settlement. Keeping a good working relationship with the other party helps us avoid unnecessary costs and disputes. We have a strong track record of securing results for our clients outside of court through the use of mediation and arbitration. If necessary, we will protect your family and home in court. We are experienced in property applications and trials.
A lawyer who picks up the phone
You need a lawyer who takes the time to understand your situation and goals. Someone who is available to talk to you and will reply to emails quickly. We make sure you get that level of service throughout the process, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks.
Adding complicated legal jargon to an already stressful situation isn’t helpful. We’ll communicate with you in plain English and save the legal language for legal documents.
Keeping costs under control
You’re already dealing with a lot, and worrying about legal fees is the last thing you need. We start out by weighing costs against benefits and continue to do this at every step of the process. Because we assign tasks to the right people at the right seniority and skill levels, you aren’t paying higher fees unnecessarily.
