Should you hire an attorney?

Yes, the CDFA may assist the attorney, but may not give legal advice. A CDFA will complement an attorney’s expertise through detailed financial analyses and alternatives.

Can a CDFA act as a mediator?

The CDFA may be present to explain the calculations during mediation, attorney meetings, and in court.

How do you charge?

This is a fee-based service. A contract outlining the fee and services will be provided, following an initial one-hour complimentary consultation. While our preference is to be hired by the attorney, in many cases we are hired directly by the client.
