When people think of high net worth divorces, they sometimes conjure up images of athletes and celebrities who are ending their marriages and are having their break up covered in great detail by the media and the tabloids.

However, small business owners, executives, doctors, lawyers, accountants and hedge fund managers may also need the services of a law firm with expertise in handling cases where significant assets are involved.

“In my marriage counseling practice, I have guided hundreds of wealthy couples through the divorce practice. And in many instances, I have referred them to highly skilled attorneys and experienced mediators.

Other couples that have come to see me while going through a divorce or after completing their divorce have hired the wrong lawyers for their cases. Part of the reason they are sitting in my office is because the wrong law firm has contributed to the stress of the divorce process.

Hiring the wrong lawyers can be expensive, time consuming and exceedingly stressful.

One couple that I treated many years ago spent two million dollars in legal fees and wound up getting less than they would have gotten had they settled their case at the beginning.

In fact, one of the main reasons I created www.HighNetWorthDivorces.com was to help people who were considering a divorce to connect with the right law firm in their community, according to Jay P. Granat, Ph.D, the Founder of


“While you may not think of yourself as a high net worth person, if you are thinking about ending your marriage and you want to protect your home, your kids, your business, your practice, your pension and your investments, it may be wise to work with an attorney with experience in protecting clients’ financial well-being,” says Dr. Granat.

“Furthermore, lawyers who handle complex matters are apt to do a very good job with a divorce that is pretty routine and straight forward.

Middle and upper middle class people tend to feel confident when they have an attorney representing them who has handled high net worth couples.

This is a lot like a weekend warrior who seeks out an orthopedic surgeon who has operated on professional athletes, notes Dr. Granat who practices in New Jersey.
