My firm is where financial expertise meets holistic family law. We strive to take care of your entire being. Settlement without court is my primary goal.
I am an attorney as well as a CPA (license inactive) and a former member of the American Society of Appraisers having earned the designation of ASA, which is a Senior Member, specializing in business valuation. I am also an adjunct professor at Carlow University teaching Criminal Evidence and the Vice Chair of the Taxation Committee of the American Bar Association Section of Family Law.
My background enables me to easily handle complex divorce and support cases, especially where closely-held family businesses are involved. I have testified in court as an expert witness regarding the value of businesses and as to the income of a self-employed person. I am also a trained mediator and collaborative lawyer and have mediated for the court custody program as well as privately in my practice.. Finally I obtained Gestault Training in counseling and can help you identify what kind of therapy you need.
I myself am divorced, You can get through that event as a stronger person and I will give you some of my tips as well as direct you to the support that you need while going through the emotional upheaval that currently exists in your life. I will also direct you in the best ways to protect your children.
My website talks about my personal situation. I have several videos on the site that will give you some insight into your situation. You can view them at www.iwanyshyn.com. I offer a free telephone consultation so feel free to call.
