Alfredo Acin represents executives and entrepreneurs, as well as their families and businesses, in resolving legal issues that touch all areas of their professional and personal lives. Whether the matter concerns divorce and custody disputes, or disputes over contract issues or collection of debts and judgments, through corporate governance or shareholder disputes or employment law matters, Alfredo is able to assist clients with navigating these complex matters in advance of and during contested court proceedings.
