Our Strengths

Business Background

Our attorneys have experience in finance, accounting, taxation and business valuation. Applying business acumen to the practice of family law, we’re focused on your financial future and protecting what you value most.

Asset Protection

We understand the complexities of entrepreneurship, business valuation, accounting, estate planning, and beyond, which is crucial in protecting our clients’ assets and obtaining a fair and equitable division of the income and assets of the parties.

Targeted Teamwork

At DWK, we do not organize ourselves into departments or practices, leaving you to figure out whom you’re supposed to call with a certain question or passing you from lawyer to lawyer depending on the matter at hand. Instead, we create teams of the right size and the right combination of skills to handle exactly what you are facing and set up a communication system that best suits the client, allowing for prompt, easy access to your attorneys.

Our Services

Our attorneys handle a full range of family law matters.

Our Team

We’re focused on achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients. Applying what we’ve learned over decades of experience, we employ sophisticated strategies and creative approaches to protect and advance your interests.

Protecting Our Clients During COVID-19

DWK has always focused on helping our clients to navigate some of life’s most challenging times. When it feels like everything you’ve worked for is at risk, we offer the guidance you need to protect what you value most – in business and in life.

This commitment to you is even more important in times like these.

So, as we continue to follow social distancing strategies to keep our friends and neighbors safe from COVID-19, we remain focused on achieving the best possible outcomes for our clients in the safest possible manner.

We’re available by videoconference, phone, email and text whenever you need us – and whenever there’s work to be done on your behalf.

This “new normal” is nothing new for our firm. We have always embraced technology, working to become a more “paperless” office and staying connected no matter where we are. Our experience using these technologies means we are already highly proficient with the cybersecurity measures necessary to secure and protect our clients’ data and privacy.

While access to our physical office is limited for the time being, the entire DWK team is working and is fully available to consult with current and new clients.

Our Awards

The legal community and business press continue to recognize DWK attorneys and their work with honors and awards for quality and service.
