“Divorce that involves complicated financial issues or private family wealth requires a smart, strategic approach. I work diligently to safeguard my clients’ assets so they can move forward with their lives.”

Navigating complex issues in a transitional time. Divorce is a complex time, not only from an emotional standpoint but also a financial one, especially for individuals with significant incomes, assets, or business interests. Elizabeth Lindsey helps these clients navigate the intricacies of divorce with expertise, enabling them to move their lives forward in a positive way.

When children are involved, Elizabeth keeps their interests at the forefront, drawing on her experience in managing complex child custody cases.

Creative solutions based on business expertise. Business owners, executives, professionals, and clients with private family wealth value Elizabeth’s financial and business acumen. She understands how executive compensation packages and plans, pensions, stock options, business valuations, and other financial tools work and, consequently, how they impact the divorce settlement. Her legal knowledge and understanding of her clients’ financial interests assists clients in negotiating agreements that give them peace of mind about protecting what they have built over a lifetime, and lessens the risk of future litigation. Fortifying her own expertise, Elizabeth can call on the resources of the entire firm for specialized counsel on taxation, trusts and estates, corporate and partnership issues.

Personally invested in clients’ well-being. Known to be tenacious and persistent on behalf of her clients, Elizabeth enjoys being personally involved in her cases. She gives clients an honest assessment of what is happening as their divorce progresses and continually works for resolutions that are most cost-effective. From experience, Elizabeth knows the kind of representation that helps divorcing clients move forward: a lawyer who truly extends herself for her clients so they can achieve the most favorable resolution possible.

She is a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers, an honor extended to no more than one percent of the lawyers in any state; a Fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers; a Diplomate in The American College of Family Trial Lawyers of which there are only 100 attorneys in the country; and is Board Certified in Family  Law Trial Advocacy by the National Board of Trial Advocacy.
