VA disability eligibility can complicate military retirement division

We recently shared information about the new military retirement plan that came into existence in 2018. Going forward, the Department of Defense will place each active and retired service member in either the legacy plan or the new one, depending on his or her length of service, and a subset of service members will have the option to either remain in the legacy plan or opt into the new one through the end of 2018. 

Important considerations when you choose a Florida family lawyer

At our law firm, we practice exclusively divorce and family law. Our laser focus on clients facing family or relationship conflict or need gives us deep understanding of the personal situations they face, often quite unexpectedly. 

What does it mean to be the “best” family lawyer?

Historically, it has been unethical for a lawyer to say that he or she is the “best” lawyer in town or in an area of law. And of course, it would be impossible to choose the best one — a subjective assessment that varies from person to person. So, how can you make a smart hiring decision? 

Dividing firefighter and police pensions in Florida divorces

A complex issue our clients often face is the equitable division of pensions and other retirement benefits in divorce. The question of pension division is uniquely complicated in Florida when one of the spouses has accumulated financial interests in a pension as a firefighter or police officer.
