She supports divorcing clients in CT, NY and NJ who engage in mediation, collaborative divorce and litigation.
Lili is a nationally recognized expert in financial planning for divorce as a practitioner, trainer, writer and speaker. She has many years of experience and an interdisciplinary knowledge of legal and financial issues. She brings clarity to complicated marital property and complex compensation issues in the divorce process.
Lili offers comprehensive financial planning consulting on an hourly basis. It is her goal to educate and encourage the woman to understand all financial entitlements and to be involved in the financial decision-making. Lili not only walks her clients through the pros and cons of every financial decision during the divorce process, but also teaches them the ABCs of handling money and assets. She works closely with each client to provide sensitive and compassionate, personalized service with the promise of maximum confidentiality. Furthermore, she alone follows through for her clients after the divorce is final to ensure efficient and accurate implementation of the terms of the settlement. Lili’s services are especially productive in cases where there are complicated financial and estate issues, significant assets, an obvious imbalance of financial knowledge between the two divorcing individuals, and / or a suspicion of financial fraud.
