I thought my divorce from my wife was going to be complicated and lengthy because of the assets we acquired during our 28-year marriage. We co-owned a business together, we owned a couple of rental properties at the beach, and we had been saving to our retirement accounts for many years. I contacted Irons & Irons for their reputation with high-net-worth divorce and I'm so glad I did. They guided me throughout the whole process.
After 19 years of marriage, I wanted a divorce, but my husband and I both own rental property together, plus a large investment portfolio. I heard Irons & Irons did a lot of work for high net worth divorce, and I'm so glad I chose them. They were able to create a clear picture of our finances and they fought for what I was entitled to so I wouldn't lose out on years of hard work or have to start over from scratch!
With the kids grown up, my wife and I realized it was time to go our separate ways. We own several businesses and I was afraid I'd lose everything in my divorce. I didn't want to start over with nothing at 55, so I went to Irons & Irons because I know they deal in high net worth divorces. I talked to Gib Irons who brought in a financial expert to look over my information, and he created a settlement solution that made sure I wouldn't struggle to start over. It was so much easier than I thought it would be.
Before our divorce, my husband and I had built a pretty good sized retirement account and investment portfolio. I didn't have any idea how that could be divided up. However, Gib Irons explained how high net worth divorce worked and he helped me come through my divorce with what I needed to start over in my new life without worrying about money.
My wife and I owned some commercial rental property and a successful landscaping business, plus we had a vacation house at the beach. Irons & Irons went through my assets with me and got a clear look at my assets, then went to bat for me in court so I wouldn't lose all my hard work. I'm so glad I went with them because they really understand high-net-worth divorces.
