Dorothy A. Voigt opened her law practice in 2015 to draft quality orders to divide retirement benefits in connection with a divorce at a reasonable price. Dorothy also is able to help attorneys and divorcing individuals to understand the retirement and executive compensation benefits they have and the divisibility of same.
Retirement plans are often valuable assets parties have when they divorce. There are many different types of retirement plans, and the rules and regulations regarding division of the plans are complex and require an expert to properly determine how to divide them. Dorothy has prepared hundreds of retirement orders for all types of retirement plans.
Previously Dorothy A. Voigt practiced with Schiller DuCanto and Fleck LLP from 2000 to 2015, where Dorothy concentrated her practice on the evaluation and analysis of retirement plans in association with the litigation of complex family law matters.
Dorothy received her Juris Doctor from IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law in 1992, scoring highest in her Family Law class and earning Dean's List Honors. Dorothy also earned, with honors, her L.L.M in Employee Benefits from the John Marshall Law School in 2012.
Dorothy is uniquely qualified to prepare Qualified Domestic Relations Orders and other orders dividing retirement plans. She is also intimately familiar with executive compensation issues.
