Recognizing that the breakup of a committed relationship is one of life’s most difficult events, Shirley May Steinbach is dedicated to guiding clients through this challenging time and reminding them to concentrate on their long-term goals.
Serving individuals who are in marital as well as non-marital relationships, Shirley helps her clients to dissolve financial partnerships in a favorable manner. As a solutions-oriented lawyer, Shirley explores the full continuum of options with her clients so they can choose the approach that is in their best interests. When clients prefer to stay out of court and determine their own fates, Shirley uses her strengths as a litigator to promote opposing parties to achieve an out-of-court settlement. Throughout the process Shirley is sensitive to the needs of children and works to protect them from the damaging effects of divorce.
Shirley draws upon her years of experience resolving “business divorces” at a large, corporate law firm in Washington D.C. to assist clients in comparable personal circumstances. She understands the inner workings of business and the valuation of assets, and focuses on achieving marital settlement agreements that protect her clients’ financial interests. Many of her clients are corporate executives, business owners, and their spouses and partners.
