High Asset Divorces in Plano, Dallas, Keller, Frisco & Across North Texas

His insights and experience have allowed him to reach successful solutions in high-profile and complex divorces, including those involving significant assets.

To learn how our experience and thorough, attentive approach to family law can benefit you, contact our law office to schedule a consultation.

When representing pro-athletes in a divorce or other family law issue, we work to keep the specifics of their situation out of the public eye as much as possible in order to maintain their privacy.

An Assertive Approach to Protecting Your Interests

We understand that protecting assets is almost always one of our clients’ top priorities. For spouses married to pro-athletes, we know that their lifestyle and financial future often depend upon securing an agreement that allows them a fair amount of spousal support (alimony) and as many assets as they can obtain in property division discussions. Even with a prenuptial agreement, the resolution of these cases can be highly technical and complex due to the conflicting interests. We work closely with financial experts from various fields to help support our clients’ positions with credible and persuasive evidence.

You can depend on us to stand up for your interests at all costs. We will not give in to settlement attempts unless it serves your purpose and overall goals.

Divorce Planning

If you are a professional athlete considering a divorce, it is to your advantage to get a clear understanding of what to expect. At The Law Office of Laurence A. DePlaza, P.C., we offer divorce planning services prior to filing a petition. We help with many tasks, from developing initial opinions on property division to evaluating the outcome of potential child custody and child support agreements. Divorce planning can help you define your objectives and help you prepare for what is to come.
