If you own a business, the accomplished business and family law attorneys at Nigro, Pettepit & Lucas, LLP, know that you have worked hard to make your company a success. The stress of running a business can take its toll. But, when the marriage of a business owner breaks down, there is often business stress accompanied by the emotional toll of the divorce.
