When Your Professional Practice and Reputation Are at Stake, Protect Your Rights!

Here at Andrew P. Johnson, APC, we can provide you with a realistic assessment of your objectives when significant assets are involved in a divorce, as well as the facts and guidance you need to make sound decisions.  For instance, many clients are primarily concerned with keeping control of a business or professional practice.  Our firm will clear up any confusion centered on the value of your practice, and your “good will” or intangible contribution to its success.

Professional practices such as medical or dental offices, veterinary or law offices appreciate in value as they become more profitable.  Ideally you want an efficient, mediated or negotiated settlement that takes into account the contribution that you make to its profitability.  Your efforts not only increase or enhance the value of a practice, but those same efforts, are also recognized in the calculation of income available for support.  This conundrum is often very perplexing to professional practices owners.  It is commonly referred to as the “Double Dip.”

Andrew P. Johnson, APC has experienced trial attorneys who have successfully represented professionals in these types of cases for many years.  They have also represented spouses of professionals such as doctors, dentists, lawyers and other professional practice owners.
