Year after year, family lawyers and their clients have relied on the leading treatise on family law taxation, Frumkes & Vertz on Divorce Taxation, to answer divorce tax questions and provide trusted advice. Lighting the path for more than 30 years, Divorce Taxation has helped family lawyers to navigate the deep waters of matrimonial taxation. No other authority provides more complete information and legal analysis of the vexing tax issues that affect spouses and families.
Frumkes & Vertz on Divorce Taxation began over 30 years ago, started by Melvyn B. Frumkes, a divorce lawyer from Miami. Melvyn was also a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, a national organization of some of the top divorce lawyers in America. Brian C. Vertz was elected as a Fellow of the Academy in 2003. Melvyn Frumkes recognized that tax issues were critical to success for his clients, especially in high-asset cases. He began to collect legal research and put it all in one place so that he could share it with members of the Academy throughout the United States. He expanded and updated the book each year until he passed away in 2014, leaving a lasting legacy of legal insight.
