Business Owners and Divorce
Attorney Michelle Schmidt understands small businesses having owned her own first small business at the age of 17. She also spent 10 years assisting business owners at both JP Morgan Chase and American Express Business Finance with complex issues such as business financing, asset valuation, inventory issues, intellectual property, good will and everything else that a small or medium size business owner faces including intangibles. That knowledge and experience makes Michelle uniquely qualified to assist business owners as they navigate the divorce process. Division of business interests in divorce can be one of the most complex issues in the community property division equation.
