About Me

I am a QDRO Attorney. I have worked in the area of retirement plans for more than 10 years. A QDRO or any other similar document used to divide retirement benefits in a divorce is a complex document that requires sophisticated knowledge of retirement plans. Although the division of retirement assets occurs in the context of a divorce, the implementation of the division via a QDRO requires solid knowledge of retirement plan law.


 


In the same way that all divorces are unique to the particular circumstances of the spouses, QDROs must be unique to the situation of the divorcing couple. Every QDRO must be carefully customized to meet the specific needs of each client.


 


For more than 10 years I practiced at law firms focusing on the area of pension plans and retirement account-based plans.

During these years I developed knowledge in Qualified Domestic Relations Orders (QDROs). A QDRO is a common requirement in any divorce settlement involving a retirement plan. Simply put, a QDRO is the document necessary to enforce the division of retirement benefits and accounts following a divorce.

The function of a QDRO is to describe in detail how the division of retirement benefits and accounts between divorcing spouses, as mandated by a court’s divorce decree, will be implemented.



I opened the QDRO Law Center to help individuals, divorce law firms and retirement plan administrators applying my experience and knowledge in this complex area of the law.


 


The QDRO Law Center’s consulting services include:



Services for individuals - If you are retiring and have been told you need a QDRO before you can begin withdrawing funds from your pension or retirement account, I offer a flat fee and efficient delivery of an expertly drafted QDRO.

Services for law firms - If you are a divorce lawyer or law firm representative seeking QDRO services from an outside consultant, I can provide a comprehensive range of legal advice to help clarify and streamline the process.

Services for pension plan administrators - If you are the plan administrator of a union pension plan, a defined benefit or defined contribution plan, or any other retirement plan subject to QDRO rules, you will appreciate the knowledgeable advice and cost-efficient QDRO processing services that the QDRO Law Center provides.
