Divorce is a complicated and stressful process for anyone, but for high-net-worth individuals or those concerned with public exposure of private lives, there is an added level of anxiety. While most law firms do not have the experience to effectively protect high-net-worth individuals, the lawyers at The Ashmore Law Firm regularly advocate on behalf of doctors, corporate executives, business owners, lawyers, athletes, celebrities, and the spouses of such individuals. The Ashmore Law Firm offers a team approach to evaluating, developing a plan, and then managing a matter based on the specific needs of the client and the talent of each of our lawyers. We explain the strengths and weaknesses of our client’s position in an honest and understandable manner and then work tirelessly to achieve our client’s objective in the most prompt, effective, and private manner possible.


High-net-worth divorces often involve significant assets, including:

  • business interests,
  • business owned real estate,
  • high-valued real estate,
  • stocks and annuities,
  • retirement plans,
  • profit sharing plans,
  • deferred compensation,
  • Restricted stock units,
  • Royalties,
  • offshore accounts, and
  • complex investments.

The size and complexity of these assets presents unique challenges, options, and limitations when it comes to obtaining verified information about the assets, valuing the assets accurately, and then dividing them appropriately. Our team has extensive experience working with forensic accountants and other financial experts to ensure all assets are accounted for and properly valued.Dallas Texas High Asset High Profile Divorce Lawyer

Privacy - Collaborative Divorce and Private Judges

High-net-worth divorces often involve significant unwanted public attention. Keeping the divorce process as quiet as possible can prevent unwanted attention from employers, the media, and others who do not need to know the details of your divorce.

Whether you are a celebrity, professional athlete, business executive, or owner of a business with shareholders, keeping your divorce as private as possible can help avoid unnecessary stress and drama in your life during and after your divorce.  While divorces are public record, the lawyers at The Ashmore Law Firm offer alternatives to the typical divorce court drama.  The use of private judges to avoid public courtrooms or a collaborative model can streamline the divorce process, allow hearings and trials to be held in a private setting and the agreements to remain confidential.

Related to privacy concerns is the risk of damaging allegations. In this context, privacy is not the primary concern, but because many high-net-worth people have high-profile careers, keeping allegations private can help preserve the marital estate.  Your lawyer should build a plan around your goals and advise you about the risks and rewards of competing legal strategies and tactics relative to your overall goals.  The lawyers at the Ashmore Law Firm can be trusted to avoid legal strategies and tactics that offer short-term rewards while risking long-term harm.  Our team is committed to protecting your privacy and can help you navigate the divorce process with as much discretion as possible. High-net-worth divorces require a unique knowledge and experience that most law firms do not possess. The Ashmore Law Firm will ensure that your interests are protected and that you receive the best outcome possible.
