High Profile Cases
High Profile Representation
Kessler & Solomiany LLC has extensive experience handling high-profile and celebrity clients and their spouses and partners. We have represented numerous entertainers, athletes, actors, musicians, public figures, and high net worth individuals. We understand the unique challenges and circumstances surrounding such cases.
Particular concerns of high profile clients
Aside from the common difficulties inherent in divorce and family law matters, these individuals often have additional complications in their particular situations. These concerns may range from unique visitation schedules for athletes who travel during much of the year, to unusual financial arrangements for entertainers who receive lump sum payments instead of a monthly paycheck.
Many of our clients, famous or not, are used to, expect, and deserve prompt service and a quick reply from their law firm to any questions or concerns. For this reason, we often “team up” on cases so that every client will have at least two lawyers and a paralegal assigned to their case. By doing this, there is a much better chance that when the client calls, emails, or texts us, someone who is intimately familiar with the case will be available to immediately respond. Also, by choosing to accept fewer cases than many other firms, our attorneys are not stretched to their limit and can better recall the facts of their clients’ cases. Obviously there are times when both (or all three or four) lawyers working on a case are unavailable for an immediate response (they may be on trial for another client or at a legal seminar), and in that case, the paralegal, or another firm member will always be willing to step in to “pinch hit” until one of the lawyers on the case can reply, usually later in the evening.
Working with agents
We frequently work with or through agents, financial advisors, personal assistants, publicists or other representatives of high profile clients, but ultimately, we need to know our clients very well and to understand their goals completely. Each case is different. Each individual has different and unique questions and desires, and it is our job to achieve the goals that the client sets, not the goals we as lawyers think they want. Of course, it is also our job to explain how the legal system works, what goals are more easily achieved, and the process for achieving them.
Embracing the challenge
Representing anyone in a divorce or related matter is challenging and rewarding. Representing “high profile” individuals can be twice as challenging and twice as rewarding. We embrace each new challenge and look forward to helping you with yours.
