Expert Guidance in Complex Divorces
Jennifer is highly experienced in divorces involving venture capital, hedge funds, private equity, privately held companies, professional practices and real estate interests.
Her clients include prominent entrepreneurs and leaders in the San Francisco Bay Area who value privacy and discretion in their personal matters.
Known for customized, big-picture and forward-facing strategies, Jennifer strengthens clients’ positions across a wide range of divorce resolution forums. She has gone the distance to achieve her clients’ goals—before private judges and in public courtrooms—and has negotiated settlements that allow her clients to move on with their lives positively.
Deep Resources for Clients
The sophistication of her clients’ assets often requires Jennifer to use resources from her extensive network. She collaborates with forensic accountants, investment advisors, family wealth offices, tax and corporate counsel, estate planners and psychologists. The goal is to optimize client outcomes during dissolution negotiations, particularly on wealth portfolios that include stock options, restricted stock units, restricted stock, management fees and carried interests, and complex real estate structures.
Jennifer’s client-centric approach prioritizes responsiveness, communication and hands-on guidance to help clients control their futures and their families’ well-being.
