Attorneys for Asset Division for Physicians in Massachusetts
Medical practices, clinics and doctors' groups are businesses. As such, they are assets and subject to inclusion when property is divided during divorce. If you are a physician with an interest in a practice, or if your spouse is a member of a medical practice group, it is important to protect yourself by obtaining experienced and knowledgeable representation and counsel.
With So Many Choices, Why Hire Our Law Firm?
At The Massachusetts Family Law Group, our attorneys have business experience that they draw upon when helping clients deal with medical practices during divorce. Our founding attorney, Lucas M. , was a business consultant for many years, advising executives and managers and developing solutions to complex problems. He uses his analytical skills and knowledge of business practices to help clients who are seeking a fair division of property that includes physician groups and other medical organizations.
Valuing a Medical Practice
The critical issue when dealing with a medical practice during divorce is the assignment of a value to the operation. Our law firm is particularly adept at doing this; our attorneys consult with specialized business appraisers who look at all aspects of a practice. In addition, they will analyze factors such as the value of a medical license, the role of the spouse in supporting the physician during medical school and the goodwill associated with the practice. In conducting this type of investigation, our specialists are always sensitive to issues related to patient confidentiality.
Representing Physicians and Spouses in Divorce
Our clients practice in a wide range of medical specialties, including family medicine, surgery, psychiatry and many other areas. We also represent dentists and other licensed professionals. Finally, we represent the spouses of doctors and others who need the combination of support and aggressive representation that we can offer.
Physician Schedules and Parenting Plans
Doctors often have non-traditional work schedules. In addition to assisting with issues arising from the medical practice itself, we also work with clients to ensure that the award of custody reflects the needs of the doctor while accommodating the spouse and promoting the best interests of the children. This is often more complicated than it seems, and our lawyers are skilled at negotiating visitation and parenting plans to arrive at a workable solution.
We plan and execute our divorce cases with the same precision as an experienced surgeon every time he or she goes into surgery.
