However, due to tax changes that will take place next year that leave the paying party on the hook for applicable taxes, even more contention could arise surrounding spousal support.

  • Brian attended mediation with us today and he was a rockstar. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. I don't know what we would have done without his well-informed counsel and the way he stood up for us. He maintained a calm and authoritative demeanor, even in the presence of the 4 other attorneys on the other "sides".
