Complex Property Division
Dividing assets and liabilities in divorce is a complicated process for any couple. It’s especially challenging, however, when a married couple has accumulated substantial assets.
If a divorcing couple jointly owns a second home, investment property, a family-owned business or other illiquid assets, it is smart to rely on an experienced divorce attorney to protect financial interests regarding property division, child support and spousal support.
The law firm of Lisa E. McKnight, P.C., in Dallas, Texas, has extensive experience handling high net worth divorce cases. We collaborate with a team of competent experts, including those experienced in business valuation and asset location. We work with these experienced professionals to successfully locate hidden assets, offshore accounts and other investments or valued property.

Even in these complicated cases we often are able to resolve matters during negotiations. When a fair settlement cannot be reached, however, Ms. McKnight is a trial-tested lawyer who is always prepared to litigate if it’s in her client’s best interest.
