Protecting your Rights and Interests
After divorce, your financial independence and well-being may be solely dependent upon your receipt of assets in the form of cash, property and support. For that reason, it is imperative to protect your rights during the divorce process to ensure a fair property settlement.
The law firm of McBrayer provides proactive representation for individuals and high-asset clients involved in the divorce process. With extensive experience in divorces involving complex property division cases, we will provide high-quality representation designed to protect your rights and interests.
Asset Division and Protection in High-Value Divorces
Our lawyers have experience in divorce cases involving ownership of businesses, ownership of professional practices and other complex property division matters. When you choose our legal team to represent you, we will conduct a comprehensive analysis of the financial and taxation issues that may affect your case. We have relationships with professionals such as appraisers, accountants and business valuation specialists who can provide insight and guidance related to critical aspects of your case. In addition, we give extensive consideration to the tax consequences associated with property division and spousal maintenance.
Our firm's careful preparation of your individual case enables us to obtain results in a cost-effective manner through negotiation or mediation. However, as skilled trial lawyers, we have the advocacy skills required to protect your interests at trial when necessary.
McBrayer will work diligently to protect your rights during the divorce process and to obtain a fair and advantageous property settlement for you.
Planning for Divorce
If divorce appears inevitable, or you have already decided to get a divorce, our divorce planning attorneys can advise you on the best measures you can take to protect your interests. We can also develop an overall divorce strategy and start analyzing the legal and financial aspects of your case.

Our family law attorneys represent individuals in all family court matters, including but not limited to divorce, child custody, timesharing, child support, maintenance/alimony, division of property, post-decree modifications, and prenuptial agreements. In addition, McBrayer offers consultations to our clients, at which our divorce lawyers will explain the divorce process and answer any questions our client may have, particularly in regard to property division, marital and non-marital debt, and other relevant issues.
