“The professions of divorce financial analysis and matrimonial law have a long, prosperous future together. The skilled CDFA brings rationality to an irrational situation.” – Frederic J. Seigel, Esq.Partner, Fitzmaurice & Seigel, CT

“However the divorce [financial analyst] enters the process, the participation of a financial specialist can benefit both clients and lawyers, according to Sandra Morris [former president of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers]. While the [CDFA] wades through the financial morass of a divorce, the attorney is freed up to focus on legal issues.” – Lawyers Weekly

“Family law clients need all the help they can get. A good lawyer working with a CDFA professional can make even the most difficult cases move forward in a cost-efficient and effective way. Good team-work between a lawyer and CDFA professional always pays dividends for clients.” – Michael G. Cochrane, LL.B.
