Avoiding Unnecessary Taxes

A single oversight in a high-asset divorce can result in tens of thousands of dollars in unnecessary taxes. David brings a strong background in taxation to his practice and has helped hundreds of clients navigate complex tax issues over the course of his career.

He consults with forensic accountants, tax experts and other financial professionals, when appropriate, to protect his clients’ wealth and assets from unnecessary taxation. David also will not hesitate to recommend bringing in an accountant or other forensic financial expert to assist in the case, when he feels it is necessary.
