Combine the Knowledge of a CPA and Business Appraiser with an Experienced Family Lawyer
Equitable distribution is about numbers and tracking assets and liabilities as well as the division of those assets. Alimony means looking at disposable income – all income, even that which is hidden in closely held businesses. Adequate representation requires someone who understands Excel spreadsheets and Quickbooks information and the way accounting records are kept. No one does that like Deborah Iwanyshyn, Esq., CPA. She first was a CPA specializing in what the courts call Forensic Accounting for two international CPA firms. She was the “Chief Accountant to the Allegheny County Controller’s Office” with 30 people reporting to her prior to attending law school at night. While in law school she passed a multitude of tests to become a certified business appraiser and has testified in court regarding the valuation of businesses. She a member of the board of the American Society of Appraisers. After becoming a lawyer and choosing to focus her practice in the family law area she became trained as a child custody mediator and mediated for the Generations Program in Allegheny County and was a member of the board of the Western Pennsylvania Mediation Council where she came to personally know many of the custody mediators and master. Then unfortunately she herself became divorced and was a single mother raising two children, one with a chronic medical condition.
All of this training and all of these experiences make her absolutely unique as a family lawyer who will fight for your rights and your children’s rights and who will ensure that you get every penny that is fair and to which you are entitled.
