“My intention in creating QDROCounsel is to provide an unparalleled resource for family law attorneys, judges, financial professionals, and QDRO experts to more efficiently and comprehensively do their jobs.”  Louise Nixon/Founder


Who we are

QDROCounsel changes how pension division and valuations are handled in the United States. The highly complex legal and financial issues that arise in pension division are critical in most divorces. In most cases, retirement benefits are the largest assets. And yet more often than not QDROs and Valuations are put on the back burner to be dealt at a later time, many times years after divorce to the detriment of the nonmember spouse. QDROCounsel empowers the family law attorney and financial professional to handle the process of pension division from start to finish.

We know that family law attorneys are responsible for staying abreast of so many different areas of law within their practice.  With QDROCounsel, your entire “best practice” will change. QDROCounsel is founded and backed by a team of nationally recognized QDRO and Valuation experts.  Our goal is to make sure that you increase revenue using our products and better serve your clients, your family law courts and your community with QDROCounsel’s resources. This is an amazing product and we can’t wait for you to be part of the community.

                When dealing with probate, a lawyer is not necessarily needed, but it can definitely make the process easier and less stressful. If you have never experienced probate before, it may be beneficial to you and your family members to have legal assistance throughout the process.

                It is ideal to write down all questions and concerns you have about your case, and bring that, as well as relevant documents, to your first meeting. This way, you are organized and prepared to listen to the attorney’s answers in detail.
