Creative Solutions to Complex Problems

My firm has been guiding clients through the divorce process for over 20 years. During this time, I have handled cases involving all aspects of property division. I work at a very sophisticated level in property division matters, yet always strive to develop solutions that are practical and which preserve assets.

It makes no sense to waste valuable assets in a legal battle when it is possible to negotiate a fair and workable settlement. At the same time, I believe you should not hesitate to litigate if that is the best way to preserve assets and protect your interests.

In your case, I will act with all deliberate speed and seek for you all that the law provides.

Taxation as it Affects Property Division

In the resolution of cases involving complex property issues, taxation is almost always an important issue. I work with tax accountants and other financial professionals to develop solutions that minimize the effects of taxation. If you have your own tax accountant, I can work with that specialist during the case.

I first met Mr. Gardner when I desperately needed help with an out-of-control divorce and custody situation. He was very attentive, thoroughly responsive, and absolutely compassionate as he helped me regain mental focus and legal control. Few attorneys practice their craft with the level of transparency and trust Mr. Gardner's clients enjoy as a matter of routine. As a senior management professional in a large Bay Area organization, I truly appreciate Mr. Gardner's no-nonsense, trustworthy, experienced approach solving legal problems.
