Sometimes everything is on the line.  If you are facing separation or divorce, you deserve the best possible legal representation. You need someone with sharp insight to go to battle with you in court.

While having a “bulldog” on your side is often desirable to defend your interests, equally important if not more so, is knowing your divorce attorney possesses appropriate financial knowledge to protect your precious assets.  



Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®)


Very few attorneys have earned the designation of a CDFA® (Certified Divorce Financial Analyst®).  Attorney Julie Gray Dorsett is the only attorney in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania practicing family and divorce law who holds this distinction.1


Why Is This Important to YOU?


As a CDFA®, Attorney Dorsett offers a base of knowledge that fully addresses your short- and long-term financial interests.

Other firms without this financial expertise often look to CDFAs® when their divorce cases require an expert witness to testify before the Court.  As a CDFA®-managed firm, Dorsett Law Firm offers this sought-after financial analysis as an integral part of representation for their clients:

  • Determining and recommending sound financial settlements to protect clients' short- and long-term financial interests.
  • Heightened skills and insights to best evaluate and divide pension and retirement assets—often the most valuable assets in a divorce case.
  • Explaining tax and insurance issues clearly and accurately while incorporating their effects into clients' settlements.
  • Calculating spousal support, alimony and child support accurately in order to maximize cash flow.
  • Knowing that some divorces have more debt to divide than assets, providing guidance to address the goals of divorce with the benefits of bankruptcy to clients who desire it.
  • Skillful review of financial statements to disclose assets and income otherwise hidden.
