          You own and operate a small business.  It requires you to plan, budget, manage others and give your best each week to make it go. The business is an extension of you. 

          It relies upon the relationships you have built along the way, the expertise you have gained and the people and systems that you have put in place.

          What happens to your business if you go through a divorce?   

          The answer is that the business must go on and you must be there to keep it running as a successful business.  The business will lose its value without you and likely cease to exist. 

          Our law firm focuses in the intersection of divorce law and small business owners.  We work to protect your business and to assure that you retain your full interest in the business during and after the divorce.

          We understand that small business owners are a unique breed that have worked all of their life to build something special.  The law firm you choose in divorce to protect your business should match your needs.
