Hiring a Divorce Attorney with Accounting Experience

CPA Attorney Divorce Los Angeles

Tax and Financial Expertise in a California Divorce

 Many individuals going through a divorce choose to hire a divorce attorney to represent them. However, choosing the most competent attorney can be a difficult and very selective process. Hiring a divorce law attorney who also has prior career experience as a Certified Public Accountant (“CPA”) (now inactive), can give you the extra boost of confidence to know that you are being represented by someone with the proven ability to handle the complex financial aspects of your California divorce case.

A CPA is the title for someone who has been licensed by the state as a certified public accountant. In order to become licensed, the individual must pass the Uniform Certified Public Accountant Examination, meet high educational standards and complete the state certification requirements for a specified amount of general accounting experience.

CPAs are known for being extremely savvy with numbers, highly analytical, detail oriented and having excellent math and communication skills. These attributes are highly advantageous for a family law lawyer to have because divorces are typically full of number-crunching issues that require a high level of analysis and detail-oriented focus such as dividing significant assets and debts, property tracings, business valuations, and support calculations to name just a few.

The extra skill set that a divorce attorney who is also a prior experienced CPA has is highly advantageous to any client going through a divorce. For example, the attorney is likely to successfully resolve a case in a more timely and cost effective manner, thus saving the client attorney fees. A divorce lawyer who is also a CPA can analyze the various number-related issues that are prevalent in divorce cases at a much quicker rate than most other family law attorneys. For example, an in-depth analysis of your tax returns will be done faster than most other attorneys because CPA are more familiar with tax forms and have a knack for dealing with numbers.

If you anticipate having a financially complex divorce or have various assets to divide, hiring an attorney with a CPA background is the way to go. Los Angeles divorce lawyer Charles M. Green, Esq. is one of only a handful of highly experienced attorneys in Los Angeles County representing clients, who was experienced as a CPA, (now an inactive CPA), and is a currently a California licensed attorney with the distinguished title of California Board Certified Family Law Specialist (CFLS). If you wish to schedule a consultation with Charles M. Green.
