Brittany Stephens Pearson practices exclusively in the area of family law, and has particular expertise dealing with complex financial issues including business interests and self-employment income, executive compensation and benefits, trusts, non-marital claims, and complex tax-related issues. She advises clients on divorce, antenuptial (prenuptial) and postnuptial agreements, custody and parenting-time rights, child support, spousal maintenance, paternity, third-party custody, grandparent visitation, stepparent adoption matters and post-decree matters.
Brittany approaches family law with careful analysis and common sense. When active planning and cooperation do not facilitate a resolution, Brittany emerges as an aggressive litigator whose attention to detail underpins her vigorous and persuasive advocacy of clients.
