“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.

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.
