High-Asset Divorces and High Conflict Custody Cases Require Experienced Lawyers


High-Asset Divorces Require Experienced Lawyers

Divorce can be complicated and costly, both emotionally and financially. However, hiring a high-asset divorce attorney that understands the need to protect your children, your property, your assets, and the very life you know is your first step to getting through a very difficult time in your life.

While you may feel overwhelmed with what is at stake, the Law Offices of Douglas Ray York, P.C., can take the worry out of your case, pursuing avenues that strengthen your case by practicing for your trial in our mock courtroom and/or by using expert testimony from appraisers or other financial professionals to reinforce the strength of your case.


High-Asset Divorce

Divorces involving high net-worth estates or assets located in foreign/offshore jurisdictions make a difficult situation more complicated. High-net-worth divorces require the studious eye of an experienced family law attorney, and our Houston high-asset divorce lawyers are dedicated to making sure you keep what is yours.

Child Custody

We understand that fighting for custody of your children can be an emotional and frustrating strain on your life, but with an experienced Houston attorney, you can make sure that the results of your child custody battle are fair. We are dedicated to protect your parent-child relationship from contentious disputes.

Asset Division

Under Texas law regarding estate protection, all property acquired during the marriage is considered community property unless proven otherwise. Our experienced high-asset divorce lawyers can help you determine what belongs to who, even under complex circumstances.

Appeals And Modifications

If your high-asset divorce is initially ruled against your favor, it isn’t the end of your fight. Don’t leave your children’s future to uncertainty. You have the right to file an appeal in an effort to change the court’s previous decision.

A Reputation of Relentless Legal Representation

  • Doctors and other medical professional
  • Business owners and executives
  • Oil and gas professionals
  • Professional athletes

I grew up in Cleveland, Mississippi, in the heart of the Mississippi Delta. I’ve always had a passion for the law and might say I was born into it, as my grandfather and father practiced law together and since I wanted to follow in their footsteps. I interned for a Texas State Senator while attending the University of Texas in Austin prior to going to law school in Georgia.
