Kingston Divorce Attorney Helping Doctors & Dentists Protect Their Medical Practice in Dutchess, Orange, & Ulster County

Medical practitioners with clinics, reputations and earnings to protect have a lot to lose in a divorce. Your medical degree and license may lead to earning capacity, but don’t necessarily guarantee success. It can take years of hard work to build up your practice. Protecting it in your high net worth divorce settlement can mean saving your financial future. Even if you were a practicing doctor before your marriage, your medical practice and professional career can be classified as marital property, subject to equitable distribution under New York divorce law.

Earnings and investments resulting from your medical practice will be classified as either separate property or marital property during a divorce. It is critical to make sure the value of the medical practice, professional license, patient list and future earnings is considered fairly during settlement negotiations and accurately reflected in any court decision. In addition, opposing attorneys will often try to claim that your spouse has rights to the appreciated value of a medical practice. Under New York law, if a medical professional can show that the spouse played no role in the increased value of the practice, it may be possible to keep the issue off the 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.
