High Asset Divorce

The complexities of a high asset divorce can bring unique challenges, particularly in regards to the equitable division of marital property. The proper steps must be taken to ensure that all relevant business interests, hidden or foreign assets, retirement accounts and other assets are properly identified and valued. At Saltzgiver & Boyle, we work closely with accountants, forensic accountants, actuaries, business valuation professionals, and other experts to help us prepare the strongest possible case for our clients.

Our clientele includes a wide range of professionals, public figures, and individuals seeking to preserve their wealth, including: Doctors & Medical Professionals, Legal Professionals, Accountants & Financial Professionals, Executives, Business Owners, Elected Officials or their spouses.
