Divorce doesn’t have to be the most defining experience of your life draining your energy, your time and your financial resources. We strive to transform fear and uncertainty into peace and confidence.

Denise French founded Divorce Strategies Group in 2014 because of her own ugly divorce in 2007. Denise desired to create a firm where others could have a better divorce experience, and to help other children not face the trauma her own child experienced. She helps others walk through the divorce process in a dignified, confident manner.

Denise focuses on the areas of divorce finance, divorce tax, separate property tracing, executive compensation in divorce, pension plans, business valuation as well as the emotional aspects of divorce.
