Who we are
A team that loves to create
At launch, we are supporting two states: California and Missouri. These are represented in red on our map.
We expect, in quick order, to be able to serve five additional states by late 2017 or early 2018, with an additional twenty-two states to follow. The timeline is not guaranteed or set in stone, as we only launch once we are prepared to be full-service, meaning we've become familiar with local retirement plans, filing procedures, and anything else necessary to fulfill our service standards for our clients. Our planned expansion territory is represented in pink on the map.

What we do
Keep it simple
We only practice where we are licensed. Why? Not only do ethics rules, and criminal laws, prohibit practicing law without a license in other states, but licensure provides peace of mind for our clients -- it tells them that we've passed the rigorous character and fitness checks of each state, that we comply with that state's ethics rules, and that there is recourse through their state bar. That's not the case for attorneys licensed in one state who offer services nationwide, or non-lawyer financial "professionals" who operate online paper mills.
Our path to nationwide QDRO services relies largely on the Uniform Bar Examination, the passage of which allows an attorney to apply for admission to approximately thirty states. Both of our attorneys have also passed the standalone California Bar Exam, which is understood by many as the hardest bar in the country. There are a number of states that, like California, have their own bar exams and, as such, are unlikely to be added to our roster any time soon. These are represented by the grey states on our map, and include Texas, Nevada, and a number of other midwestern states. We will explore avenues for entering these states in the long-term, but as of now, we are not actively pursuing admission.
