Family Law

Sherman & Howard’s Family Law Group provides a full range of family and matrimonial legal services to high-profile and high-net-worth clients in matters involving:

  • divorce and legal separation
  • mediation and arbitration
  • adoption
  • relocation
  • parental responsibilities

Our goal is to preserve the confidentiality of our clients while ensuring they navigate their family law issues in ways that keep them as whole as can be.

Our clients include business owners and corporate executives, professional athletes, physicians, artists, collectors, attorneys and other prominent professionals. We have decades of experience serving as trusted advisors in complex divorce proceedings involving business valuation and protection, executive compensation and benefits, trusts, and tax issues. We often leverage the firm’s corporate, tax, and estate planning capabilities to achieve our clients’ objectives in an efficient and cost-effective way.

We have extensive experience advising on child custody matters, including high-conflict parenting time or relocation petitions, paternity agreements, and domestic adoptions as well as the structuring of complex spousal and child support arrangements.

We maintain key relationships with accountants, estate planners, family office professionals, and business valuators to seamlessly represent our clients in all aspects of family law. In our role as family office counsel, we provide services related to the negotiation and drafting of pre- and post-nuptial agreements as well as asset valuation and protection, including the transfer of wealth through trusts, family limited partnerships, and other entities used by estate planners.  Our family law attorneys also are proficient in dealing with issues arising from same-sex marriages and relationships, as well as from non-traditional family relationships.

Recognized leaders in the field, our family law attorneys are consistently recognized in legal rankings such as Best Lawyers of America and Chambers USA.  We are frequent authors and presenters on legal developments and trends in family law.
