Open for Business
The firm is open for business and, beginning May 18, 2020, we will generally be available by phone and email during normal business hours.  

We are taking steps to conform with applicable State and County orders and guidance to ensure the health and safety of our staff, clients, and others.  Therefore, we expect there will be limitations on physical access to the office for the time-being.

PROTECTION OF NONMARITAL PROPERTY

Generally, property that was owned or acquired before marriage, and property that was acquired by gift or inheritance, belongs to that spouse as separate property and is not subject to division by the court. Some property acquired during marriage may even be separate property as well, depending upon how it was acquired. However, there are many ways in which separate property can become marital property. We utilize our knowledge and experience in the most complex property matters to ensure that assets are properly characterized as separate or marital property, safeguarded or challenged, and dealt with accordingly.
