Straight-Forward and Complex Property Cases

The principal of our firm, Thomas M. Polinger, has 25 years experience in the practice of family law. During that time, he has handled almost every type of divorce and property division matter, ranging from the straight-forward to the complex.

Even a relatively simple case can involve aspects of valuation, asset tracing, and property conveyance that require the attention of an experienced attorney. In these cases, Thomas M. Polinger will work to achieve a settlement that is fair and protects the client's interests.

On the other hand, cases involving complex real estate issues require the services and knowledge of an experienced lawyer. For example, suppose that both spouses use their separate property to by a house together. Later, they take out a second mortgage and one spouse uses a portion of the mortgage proceeds to settle a separate debt. During the divorce process, the other spouse removes a valuable antique fixture attached to the house and sells it. In this case, the ability to trace and identify the separate and marital assets is essential to a fair and just resolution.
