Attorney Meyers uses her unique background as a Finance Major and a Certified Financial Litigator (CFL)  to thoroughly investigate and evaluate financial issues in a divorce.  Many clients have no idea of the true value or extent of their family assets or debts.  Many clients are faced with a lack of financial documentation to prove the true earnings of a spouse.  An attorney who understands finance is a tremendous benefit for a divorcing client as divorce is a serious financial transaction at a time when a person is emotionally vulnerable.
