Lawyers Going Through a DivorceNew York Divorce Attorney Helping Lawyers With Their Divorce in Dutchess, Orange, & Ulster County

Licensed attorneys work years to build up their practice or to earn a partnership at a law practice. Your future is at stake. Your law career can be worth millions of dollars in income and revenue over the course of a lifetime. Losing it all or a part of it in your divorce settlement isn’t an option. Even if you were a successful lawyer before your marriage, the courts can determine that the appreciated value of your practice and your career must be subject to equitable distribution.

Are You Worried About Losing Your Law Practice in Divorce?

For more than 25 years, legal professionals filing for divorce have been turning to the lawyers’ lawyer, Jonathan D. Katz, Attorney at Law, in Saugerties, New York. I use every available strategy and method to determine fair valuation of your practice and protect your career from the financial ruin of losing it in a settlement.

Appreciated Value of Your Law Practice During Your Marriage

A successful law practice increases in value over time, just as any other business asset often does. Even if you operated your practice before your marriage, your spouse may argue that the value of your license and practice increased in value because of their efforts. Under New York law, you may be able to limit your exposure relating to appreciated value by showing that your spouse did little or nothing to contribute to the growing success of your career. I will work to develop a strategy to keep your law practice off the negotiating table.

Client Reviews
I was living a nightmare of being falsely accused in a judicial system that considers all fathers to be dead beat dads until proven innocent. Living out of state and facing the possibility of jail, I miraculously found Jon’s website and called his office. Within a week the tables were turned, the lies were exposed, and the harassment was stopped. If you need someone that will challenge the system, then you need Jonathan Katz. Greg Weaver
Jon’s integrity towards his clients is what makes him a standout attorney. He makes it a priority to know what's important to you. You’re not just a number. He is upfront with you right from the start. He will not string you along just for his financial benefit. He is only willing to settle the case if that's truly what you want. Anytime I called him I received a call back from him that day. Not someone else in the office. He is an attorney that has a passion for what's important to his clients. John Morrissey
Being a single mom, I had enough stress in my life. I had no idea how to go about protecting myself. My daughters were my priority. Jon walked me through the process. He turned a difficult time into a workable solution. Diane Chiriani
Jon thinks well, works to be clear and honest. He works to get to a strong argument. He seems to have a good working relationship with everybody at the courthouse. I get the feeling he has no trouble thinking like a judge. He is friendly and courteous. He doesn't overbill. He takes and returns calls promptly. His legal staff is friendly and competent. What's not to like? Rick S.
I liked that there was always transparency throughout my case. Genevieve H.
