A Team Of Experienced Family Law Professionals
For business owners, divorce raises complex issues. The business must be properly valued and characterized as marital or separate property. These determinations affect how the business interests will be divided. Given the complicated and often disputed nature of such determinations, achieving a fair resolution can readily become an uphill battle.
Experienced legal guidance is critical for Waukesha business owners facing divorce. At the family law practice of Jacobson Legal Group, S.C., our lawyers possess the legal, business and financial acumen necessary for effectively navigating such cases. Attorney Karyn Gimbel Youso is devoted exclusively to family law issues and with more than 20 years of experience, a wealth of legal insights, skills and knowledge, she works to protect what is important to business owners in divorce.
We understand the emotional and financial impact of divorce, and we offer an effective model for containing costs by delegating tasks between our family law professionals.

Traditional And Collaborative Solutions
We are committed to utilizing low-conflict approaches such as Collaborative Divorce wherever possible.
