Protecting Professional Practices

Kingston Divorce & Asset Division Attorney Helping Clients Protect Their Businesses & Professional Practice in Dutchess, Orange, & Ulster County

Licensed professionals stake their careers on their practice. It takes years to build up a professional reputation among clients and colleagues. Losing it all or a potion of it in a divorce property settlement can be a financial disaster that is impossible to overcome.

Professionals Have a Lot to Lose if They Lose Their Practice in Divorce

If you are a professional going through a divorce, will your attorney know how to make sure your practice remains separate property? At Jonathan D. Katz, Attorney at Law, I have been aggressively protecting the financial interests of divorcing professionals for more than 25 years. I am a skilled, experienced litigator who knows the strategies for keeping your practice in your name. When we meet during an consultation, we will discuss the complex issues involved in your property settlement, including:

  • Fair valuation of your practice
  • Whether the appreciated value is subject to property transmutation
  • What part of your professional practice is subject to rules of property transmutation
  • How tax obligations and corporate structures might impact your settlement
  • What did your spouse contribute to the success of your professional practice and career

Your professional license may give you the capacity to increase your earnings, but it doesn’t guarantee your practice will be successful. Losing everything in your high net worth divorce isn’t equitable distribution. It is unfair and I fight hard to make sure it doesn’t happen.

For more than a quarter century, my practice, in Saugerties has been representing licensed professionals in a broad range of professions, including:

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.
