Marital Asset Distribution
When a divorce involves the distribution of significant marital assets, there is simply no substitute for the assertive, strategic and results-focused representation of a lawyer with significant negotiation and trial experience.
Individuals in Cumberland County entrust their financial future with our firm because of the experience of our attorney, James H. Cooke. Over more than 40 years, he has established a family law practice focused on our clients’ long-term financial security. Where many lawyers look at short-term victories that may not be in a client’s best interest, we position our clients for enduring financial well-being. People who entrust their legal rights to a law firm deserve nothing less.
We have represented a diversity of clients in wide-ranging financial circumstances. Because we are experienced approaching asset division-related issues from all sides, we know how to craft the arguments that are most likely to help a client, regardless of his or her apparent financial position.
Financial Success Can Take Many Forms. We Can Help You Protect Yours.
From the moment you first meet with a lawyer to discuss your divorce-related concerns, he should be working diligently to assess your and your spouse’s circumstances and how to position you for a favorable settlement or judgment.
Our attorney has experience developing strategies to help people with a wide range of financial investments, including:
- Real estate
- Retirement plans, including pensions, 401(k)s and IRAs
- Stocks and bonds
- High-value collectibles
We retain a network of appraisers, forensic accountants and financial experts that assist in determining the full value of the marital estate. Once we have this information, we can then assess what is most likely to be contested, and forcefully advocate — at the negotiating table and in the courtroom — for a fair outcome for our client.
If you and your spouse signed a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement, we can evaluate the likely effect of such an agreement.
