I handle quite a few; many couples in the Dallas area have high net worth when their family is breaking up, sadly. We oftentimes will bring in some financial assistance. So for example, either a CPA or forensic accountant to look into what the value is of the marital estate and how best to try to divide it up. It depends on which spouse I’m representing usually there’s a monied spouse and a non-monied spouse and we approach it a little differently depending on which side we’re representing. Generally, I find that people would prefer not to have their dirty laundry aired in public and certainly, when you’ve already in the public eye we take extra steps to make sure that their information is protected.
