Work with experienced attorney to establish effective marital agreements

Protecting assets from being divided in divorce is often an important goal for those entering into marriage with significant assets, and for those who are contemplating divorce where significant assets are likely to be in dispute. Even those with modest wealth can benefit from entering into an agreement prior to marriage or divorce, since marital agreements are quite versatile in terms of the issues they can address.
