We are committed to supporting individuals and couples through the financial obstacles they will face during divorce.

“I knew going into my divorce that a great attorney was essential. what I found to be even more important though was having a seasoned professional who understood the financial aspects and future implications of our legal decisions. Leah was able to take our combined assets, make recommendations based on our agreement and provide a detailed division that took away all of the financial stress and worry. In hindsight, I wish we would have met with Leah first; it would have saved us time and simplified the divorce process.”
"What most impressed me about Leah is her ability to make financial planning to be an easy and ‘painless’ task. She has a very simple process to help one think about their needs for the future and a clear system on what to do to achieve those goals. So if you’re like me and want a clear, concise plan that is easy to follow with personalized service, Leah is sure to deliver, while keeping her client’s best interest at heart."
"Leah is a results-driven individual and thoughtful analyst who sees both the big picture as well as the details. Importantly, she puts the client first."

At a time in your life when you are making a major change and are afraid of unforeseen consequences, it is comforting to know that her knowledge and experience will help immensely...I feel very confident in her ability and expertise so it helps me relax having her assistance. I would recommend her to everyone going through a divorce. She can save you a lot of money and give you sound advice."
""Leah is a very supportive and well rounded asset to anyone embarking on divorce. She helped me with a very complicated financial crisis and has knowledge of different types of situations... I am comforted knowing she is a part of my team in this life changing, sometimes terrifying time."
