Family Law

When you are going through a divorce, a child custody or visitation case or fighting a child-support issue, it's essential to have a considerate and experienced legal team on your side. At Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek, we feel that because these important decisions have emotional and financial components from beginning to end, you must have a knowledgeable and steady advocate giving you guidance. Our team is well versed in multiple areas of family law, including the complexity of high-end divorces and family matters.

These difficult personal dimensions are almost always overlain with major financial considerations involved in representing high-net-worth individuals. Closely-held companies and other assets may be involved, so we work closely with our tax, pension, corporate and estate planning attorneys to provide informed and insightful counsel.
