Matt Yeakey heads the team of attorneys who provide professional services to clients in the field of domestic relations, with special expertise in those matters that present complex valuation or distribution issues. We counsel families in all aspects of matrimonial law, including pre-nuptial agreements, dissolution (divorce), legal separation, property division, child custody and visitation, spousal maintenance, paternity, and related areas. At Sanders • Pianowski, LLP, the emphasis is on finding creative solutions to legal problems, and that emphasis is especially relevant in the area of family law. Our reputation lies in our ability to bring parties together to resolve disputes without unnecessary legal intervention. This is achieved through a proactive approach to our clients’ needs by seeking to protect their families from needless and potentially destructive adversarial proceedings. However, when litigation is unavoidable, our clients appreciate the firm’s reputation for vigorous and tenacious advocacy. The hallmark of the firm is its proven experience in handling clients’ legal matters in a successful and cost-effective manner.
Because of our close continuing relationships with evaluation professionals, our family law and business attorneys are especially capable of representing clients who have questions regarding the value of complicated business and investment assets, including interests in retirement funds, real estate, closely held and family corporations and professional practices. Our depth of experience in the area provides assurance to clients involved in highly emotional and turbulent legal proceedings that their interests will be fully and discretely protected to the fullest extent possible under the circumstances. Our clients benefit from the ability of each practice group to draw upon the skills and talents of attorneys in the other groups for assistance with a particular problem or opportunity. We believe that an integrated team approach not only produces sound legal advice, but also helps achieve the optimum practical result for a client’s business. Our primary object is always to seek amicable resolution of marital disputes, but, if necessary, we have the resources, ability and knowledge to aggressively represent our clients at trial and secure the best results possible.
