Denver High-Asset Divorce Lawyers
For spouses with high income and significant assets, divorce can pose numerous complicated legal issues, particularly with regard to property division. All assets must be identified, valued, and characterized as marital or separate property then allocated according to fact-specific considerations. Each party’s financial future is dramatically shaped by the outcome of the property division. At the boutique family law firm of Polidori Franklin Monahan & Beattie L.L.C., we represent clients in high-income or high-asset divorce proceedings. Since 1980, our firm has maintained a focus on family law. Backed by more than 150 years of collective experience, including extensive experience handling complex property division and valuation issues, our attorneys share a dedication to providing personal legal guidance of the highest caliber.
Our attorneys are leaders in the family law field. As a result of our commitment to professional excellence, our firm has always been selected as one of the Best Law Firms in Colorado by U.S. News Media Group since the inception of this award in 2010.
Equitable Division in Colorado
In Colorado, courts divide property according to principles of equitable division and divide marital assets in a fair and equitable fashion, taking into account a number of specific circumstances such as each spouse’s employment circumstances, contribution to the marriage as well as separate property interests.
Marital vs. Separate Property
Certain types of property — such as gifts, inheritances and property acquired before marriage — may qualify as separate property. Thus, the characterization of property as separate or marital can significantly impact the outcome of a case.

Our firm utilizes state-of-the-art technology to effectively and efficiently navigate complex property division. We also work with other trusted professionals such as appraisers, accountants, estate planning experts and tax advisers to accurately identify, trace and value marital and separate assets.
