“ Steve and Renee were great to work with! Very professional and realistic. Gave no false expectations or predictions. They communicated everything to us in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again if ever needed! Thank you, Steve and your team! “
“ For my family law case, Steve Smith had a very strong presence and was dominant in the courtroom. The manner in which he carries out cases is something you see in the movies. He was really animated and passionate about my case. His military background is a big asset, and he really helped me out. I would highly recommend him. “
“ We hired Leah M. Baldacci for a family law case and she was so extremely helpful and got me through my case. She’s very professional and takes the time to listen to her clients. She’s a wonderful advocate and a fantastic attorney. If you’re looking for a great attorney, I recommend Leah. Thank you so much for your legal help. “
“ I’ve hired Steve for two cases, and I am very pleased with my decision. He fights for his clients and strives for the best outcome. His entire staff is pleasant and wonderful to work with. “
“ I hired Steve for a parental rights case involving my 2 children. He was aggressive but supportive and did not file unnecessary motions that wasted my retainer. I was terrified of court, but with his experience, I felt at ease. The process was explained, and his staff was great as well. I would hire him again if needed and received a great outcome with an order that works for me and my children. “
Handled my Parental Rights Case with Ease
Many small businesses in Maine are formed as Limited Liability Companies (“LLCs”). In Maine, a closely-held limited liability company is defined as an LLC with fewer than 35 members, which has no transferable interests listed on a national securities exchange or regularly quoted in an over-the-counter market by one or more members of a national securities association.
During a divorce, when property, including businesses, need to be distributed or when Child Support needs to be calculated, and one of the parties is an owner of a small or closely-held business, it can often be difficult for the parties or the Court to determine the value of the business.
In these situations, your Family Law Trial Lawyer will advise you as to whether it may be appropriate to hire a forensic accountant to analyze the records of the business. A forensic accountant may be asked to provide you with the valuation of the business, as well as the annual income of the owner.
These forensic accountants will be designed for the Court as one of your “Expert Witnesses.” An Expert Witness is someone who has certain knowledge, skills, education, experience, or training in a specialized field, which allows them to testify as to their independent expert opinion at trial based on the information that is provided to them. Our Family Law Trial Lawyers will be able to determine whether an Expert Witness is appropriate for your case and recommend a specific individual with expertise in the necessary area.
