Divorce is never a simple matter. Even if there are no children and no complicated assets, there are many different issues that arise as a result of a divorce that need to be dealt with. You need an attorney with the experience and skill to handle every aspect of your divorce.

As a Ridgefield divorce lawyer representing clients in the Danbury and Stamford courthouses for more than 25 years, I have seen all of the issues that come up in the course of a divorce, and I can help make sure your interests are represented in any divorce situation, including:
- Property division
- High net worth divorce
- Valuation of pension and retirement benefits
- Valuation of business interests
- Business valuation
- Alimony and child support
- Mental health issues and other special needs
- Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
Because I know how difficult and sensitive these issues can be for my Fairfield County clients, I handle these matters thoughtfully and carefully. I will give you the information you need to understand the probable consequences of your potential decisions so that together we can make the best choices for you.

If There Is a Better Solution, Together We Can Find It
Sometimes in a divorce, the long-standing animosity or some practical aspects of the situation make it necessary to litigate; another approach is simply not possible. In these cases, I have the experience to litigate on your behalf to make sure your interests are well represented.
In the vast majority of divorce cases, however, I find that alternative dispute resolution (ADR) methods work best for my clients instead of the contentious courtroom battle. I can assist you with a cooperative approach to divorce that avoids litigation, saves time and money, and also preserves a more amicable relationship between the parties. Two cooperative approaches I use are:
- Mediation: Mediation involves the two divorcing parties and a neutral mediator working out the terms of the divorce and related issues together. The mediator does not represent either party.
- Collaborative law: In collaborative divorce, each party is represented by his or her own attorney, but all parties agree not to litigate. Other experts are also available to help the parties understand their choices and make sure their interests are protected.
Divorcing couples that work out the terms of their divorces outside of the courtroom have a much more successful experience in most cases. They feel they retain more control over the process, cost and outcome. The process allows them to maintain a less contentious long-term working relationship, take better care of their children and make joint decisions in the future.
