Although our firm is best known for helping clients in business disputes, Brad Jackson also provides extensive experience representing both husbands and wives in high-stakes divorces. Over the years, Brad has effectively represented entrepreneurs, business executives, doctors, lawyers, and a variety of other individuals in significant divorce matters.
Now, the firm is expanding our family law work with the launch of a new practice area devoted to High Net Worth Divorces, including cases involving division of assets, child support, child custody, and alimony.
Business Skills Help Divorce Clients
Over the years, Brad noticed an all-too-familiar dynamic where the same chummy group of divorce lawyers often go up against each other in court. Rather than becoming a member of this unofficial “divorce lawyers club,” Brad decided the best way he could help his divorce clients was to use the same skills he’s built over the years representing people and companies in business cases.
As a result, Brad discovered that his business background often caused him and his clients to be better prepared than the other side during all stages of a divorce. Instead of playing by the unwritten rules, Brad uses everything in his toolbox to best represent his divorce clients.
Sometimes that means bringing in appraisers and other financial professionals to properly address the value of marital assets. Sometimes it means hiring a forensic account to determine whether a spouse has been dishonest by hiding stocks, bonds or even cash. Brad leaves no stone unturned to make sure his clients’ rights are protected.
The firm’s prior work in divorce litigation includes cases involving such assets as:
- Family businesses
- Family trusts
- Investment properties
- Inherited assets
- Private homes
- Vacation properties
- 401(k) and other retirement accounts
- Stocks and stock options
