For nearly three decades, Sonja Trom Eayrs has advised clients in marital dissolution proceedings with asset values ranging from $1 million to more than $200 million. Her detailed knowledge of litigation and dispute resolution, tax strategy, business valuation and cash flow enables her to help resolve divorce cases while minimizing conflict.
Divorce is difficult. While Sonja has assisted dozens of clients through the painful process of divorce, her straightforward yet compassionate style guides them through and beyond the turmoil, stress and hurt to a new beginning. Sonja has a simple word of advice that she shares with all clients — hope. Sonja is committed to creating a win-win situation for the family, which allows the parties and their children to heal and succeed post-divorce. Sonja works with clients to develop and implement smart and creative resolutions to the challenges and problems facing their families.
Sonja’s tax background uniquely qualifies her to represent individuals in marital dissolution proceedings involving significant and complex holdings. She advises clients regarding business valuation, property division, custody and parenting time matters, spousal maintenance and antenuptial (prenuptial) agreements and she vigorously defends her client's position.
Sonja has helped clients through even the most acrimonious litigation involving financially complex estates and emotionally charged child custody issues. While Sonja has the ability to litigate when necessary, she works tirelessly to provide principled, honest and respectful resolution in even the most seemingly intolerable divorces, often engaging in the use of mediation before resorting to expensive litigation.
Notably, Sonja also serves as a Rule 114 qualified neutral mediator. She brings these skills to bear when negotiating considerate solutions that parallel each client’s often distinct needs.
