Nancy handles all aspects of a divorce, including the division of financial assets (including the marital home), child custody (both physical and legal custody), child support, and modification of previous court orders and visitation.

She specializes in high-net-worth “grey” divorces (divorce over 50) and empty nester divorces, where her clients’ children are grown, and considerable financial assets must be preserved.


“During various life events, I had to seek the counsel of an attorney. To this date, Nancy Ghertner is the most impressive attorney I have ever hired. Nancy is diligent at securing the best results for her clients, professionally personable, intelligent, ethical, and reasonably priced for her services. But, most of all, I felt that she very sincerely and personally cares about her clients.

If I ever need to seek legal counsel again, I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call Nancy as many of my friends and family members have done.”
