Domestic Violence in High-Net-Worth Families

Chicago Domestic Violence Lawyers

Allegations of domestic violence impact a high-asset divorce proceeding in numerous ways in Illinois. In addition to possible criminal charges and penalties, those accused face damage to their reputations as they endure the criminal process. For those who own businesses, multiple homes and vacation properties, they also face actions in civil courts that lead to significant property being given to the allegedly abused spouse.

At Boyle Feinberg Sharma (BFS), our family law attorneys know the stakes are high for both the accused and the accusers. That awareness combined with dedication and diligence helps us provide the seasoned and sophisticated legal representation our clients need.
