Representing Clients With Complex Property Division Issues

Asset division is one of the most complex portions of divorce — the effects of which can impact your financial health for years to come. The best way to protect your financial interests is to work with a skilled attorney who is experienced in the legal, financial and practical aspects involved.

I am attorney Andrea Hirsch. I have almost 20 years of experience handling family law disputes. Over the course of my career, I have represented many clients with complex, high-value assets, such as closely held businesses, income-producing properties, sophisticated investment portfolios and other nontraditional forms of income. I understand the high stakes involved during divorce, and how best to achieve a fair division that will allow you to leave your marriage in the most financially secure manner possible.

Protecting Your Financial Well-being During Divorce

What is a business's potential cash flow? What is the present value of a pension? How much income is a property likely to produce in the future?

When dividing property, the short- and long-term economic consequences of the proposed division must be analyzed. Determining the worth of each asset takes considerable skill.

Depending on the type of assets involved, it may be necessary to enlist the help of outside financial and business professionals. I have a wide network of experts, including certified public accountants (CPAs), business valuation experts and real estate appraisers I often call upon to ensure the true value of each asset is determined.

Once the current value, as well as any long-term financial potential, is known, I will work toward a property division agreement that protects your financial interests.

A Family Law Attorney Who Cares

Divorce is about more than dividing assets; it's about separating two lives. I chose to become a family lawyer so I could use my skills to help people through what is often a highly emotional, painful process. When representing your interests, I bring not only my considerable legal experience, but sensitivity and understanding to the entire situation.

When possible, I use alternative methods — such as negotiation or collaborative processes — to resolve disputes. This approach not only produces great results, it also makes the process easier for you.
