AWARD WINNING LAW FIRM IN AUSTIN, TX

Divorce for Executives and Professionals

We Know the Issues Facing Executives During Divorce

Divorces that involve executives and professionals are complex matters that require the involvement of an experienced divorce attorney. Without a lawyer who has a comprehensive understanding of the issues surrounding a high-profile divorce, the proceedings can drag on for an excessively long time and the division of assets may not align with what is equitable to both parties. As a board-certified lawyer in family law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, Jimmy Vaught is highly qualified to handle these complex cases.

When executives or professionals experience a divorce, the proceedings involve unique considerations. 

The attorneys at Vaught Law Firm are experienced in handling these situations.  That is why we’ve successfully represented doctors, lawyers, executives, chiropractors, dentists, accountants, business owners, or other professionals and their spouses who are going through a divorce in Central Texas. Our client-focused approach to divorce for high net worth couples allows us to provide full-service divorce representation.

At Vaught Law Firm, we have the experience and insight necessary to provide executives or their spouses with the high-quality representation they need when their marriages have reached an end. Our clients work directly with our highly trained and experienced attorneys throughout the full course of the case. This allows clients to gain the peace of mind that comes from having knowledgeable advocates who always protect their interests and provide trusted advice.
