These are a few situations and emotions our clients commonly deal with. Do any of them sound familiar?

  • “I'm tired of the drama, living on autopilot and just trying to keep it together every day. I'm ready for a fresh start and a new chapter. I know it’s time.”
  • “We had a lifestyle that included a good home, newer cars, a vacation house and club memberships. How are we going to divide everything and be okay? It's overwhelming trying to ensure I'm taken care of financially during this transition.”
  • “I've worked hard for what I have, and I don't want to lose it all. I need a negotiator to ensure my needs are taken care of and that I'm not taken advantage of.
