He is skilled at representing clients' interests in even the most complex asset division cases. Contact our office in Clifton, New Jersey, to learn how he can help you.

Identifying Marital Assets in High-Net-Worth Divorce Cases

New Jersey follows the legal principle of equitable distribution of marital assets. This includes any property accumulated during the marriage, from the home to retirement account funds. The problem in high-net-worth divorce cases is that the martial assets can become heavily intertwined with separate assets, or assets acquired before the marriage. Identifying and separating all the assets is a complex task that requires a meticulous investigation and full disclosure from both parties.

Lawyer Howard K. Pfeffer has represented many clients in high-net-worth divorce cases. He works closely with forensic accountants and other financial experts to accurately identify all the assets available for division, and divide them fairly between the parties.

Many high-net-worth individuals have a prenuptial or postnuptial agreement that they signed in order to protect their assets in a divorce. If you have one, Howard can help make sure the property distribution judgment follows the terms of the agreement.
