Our attorneys have extensive experience guiding clients through the dissolution of marriage process. Our clients include winery and vineyard owners, real estate developers, individuals in high tech, financial services industries or their spouses. The Firm represents clients in complex marital dissolution (i.e. divorce) cases, as well as in drafting, negotiating and if needed, litigating the validity of premarital and post-marital agreements. Through regular consultation with our clients we provide high-caliber representation to assist clients with the ever-evolving Family Law issues that impact business, real estate, tax and support issues attendant to complex divorce cases. Our work with business owners and high-income individuals has given us experience in numerous industries, including all facets of the wine industry, real estate development, financial services, professional practices (doctors/lawyers/accountants), car dealerships, petroleum distribution, as well as individuals in the entertainment industry.
PRACTICAL, BUT PREPARED
Our experience informs us that successful resolution of your case requires a practical view of likely outcomes in order to negotiate a realistic resolution. At the same time we recognize the need to protect our client’s interests and if necessary, skillfully litigate those issues that in some cases cannot be resolved by agreement.
At the outset, we work with you to determine the services you require, and work to assemble appropriate experts that may be required (accountants, appraisers, evaluators and the like) to provide the representation appropriate to your matter. We then work to gather the information necessary to evaluate and advocate on your behalf, with a focus on finding pragmatic options for resolution that can preserve your and your family’s relationships and resources.
Our Firm provides what is referred to as Traditional Client Representation. This means we represent the interests of our client in bringing about a resolution that takes into account our client’s needs and goals.
Blevans & Blevans, LLP provides the highest caliber representation in:
- Dissolution and Legal Separation Proceedings, particularly those involving complex issues of business valuation or sophisticated compensation structures.
- Pre-separation consultation and planning
- Premarital and Postnuptial Agreements (negotiation, drafting and litigating their validity)
- Custody issues, including relocation (i.e. “move away”) cases
- Spousal and child support issues, including the modification of existing support orders.
In addition to representing clients from the beginning of a case through its resolution, we are often referred cases by other attorneys to handle the litigation aspects of a case which otherwise has proven to unlikely to resolve by settlement. In this capacity, we bring our extensive courtroom experience to assist the client in the courtroom presentation of their case.
