  • Description

    Most family law attorneys know that a retirement account can be their best asset or their worse liability in a domestic relations case, depending on how they approach these highly complex assets. The failure to cover the specific benefits related to retirement account in settlement and/or trial can set a client up for dissatisfaction, or worse yet, set their attorney up for a malpractice claim.

    In this one-hour presentation, nationally-renowned QDRO attorney Matthew L. Lundy, Esq. talks about some of the fine points of federal and military retirement accounts in family law cases. This program is perfect for intermediate and advanced family law practitioners.
