At the Shaw Law Firm, we routinely enlist the help of tax specialists, business valuators and forensic accountants to ensure that our clients’ property rights are fully protected. You or your spouse may have a closely-held business, a professional practice or other kinds of income-generating properties. We have the legal tools and resources to ensure that those complex assets are identified and accurately assessed.
An under-valuation or over-valuation could have a permanent negative impact on a divorcing spouse’s financial future, and we work aggressively to guard against this outcome.
Additionally, when high-value property is at stake, it is not uncommon for one spouse to try to hide assets in a closely-held business or by other means defer income. We know how to uncover this kind of activity and protect our clients’ property rights.
Prior to becoming a divorce attorney, Mr. Shaw was employed at a large accounting firm where he was involved in the area of divorce, alimony and tax litigation support, which included businesses and pension valuations and the analysis of various financial and tax issues.
