The attorneys at TRABOLSI | LEVY | GABBARD LLP, based in Los Angeles, have a sophisticated understanding of the legal and financial issues in high-asset divorces as well as our clients' need for confidentiality. Our firm brings significant experience in divorce litigation, negotiation, settlement and alternative dispute resolution.

We regularly represent business owners, business executives, professionals, athletes, entertainers and other high net worth individuals. We also represent many spouses of high earners who need sophisticated representation to ensure that they are treated fairly in divorce and the division of the marital estate.

How We Can Help With Your Divorce

California is a community property state, meaning that both spouses are entitled to an equal share of the community property assets in divorce. However, splitting the estate in half can be easier said than done.

Securing your fair share without a protracted legal battle requires knowledge, strategy and creativity. Our lawyers have prior experience handling every facet of complex property division and high-asset divorce, and we are attuned to the special considerations of our high net worth clientele, which include:

  • Keeping a divorce settlement private and confidential
  • Determining marital property versus separate property
  • Resolving concerns related to the ownership of a business
  • Addressing the status of the couple's marital home or vacation properties
  • Considering what should happen with retirement accounts or other high-value investments, including stock options, retirement plans and other deferred compensation
  • Dividing the couple's marital debts
  • Uncovering hidden assets, offshore accounts and unreported income
  • Calculating child support guideline deviations
  • Addressing spousal support concerns
  • Finding the appropriate parenting plans, custody and visitation schedules

Experts can make a difference. Accurate valuations of assets and accurate income figures are absolutely crucial to a fair result to questions concerning property division, child support or alimony. Our attorneys draw on a wide network of experts, including real estate appraisers, business valuation specialists, forensic accountants and other experts, as needed, to position our clients for a favorable outcome.

We are always prepared to fully represent our client's interests and litigate when necessary, but we strive to reach an out-of-court consensus on what the estate is worth as foundation for a fair, practical and efficient split of the community estate. Engaging in litigation must be weighed against privacy concerns. We use our knowledge of the law and the local courts to give clients a realistic picture of the costs and public exposure of divorce litigation as well as the likely outcome at trial.
